Today’s Quote: Seneca…uh…Socrates…

“Why do you wonder that globe-trotting does not help you, seeing that you always take yourself with you? The reason which set you wandering is ever at your heels.”

— Seneca quoting Socrates, Epistle XXVIII On Travel as a Cure for Discontent

So—traveling in and of itself will not change a person.

By the way, you’ll be seeing lots of quotes from Seneca for a while since I’ve been reading my way through his complete works. He’s probably my favorite of the ancient Stoics—with plenty of wisdom that’s applicable for our time.
