Travel around the world – Aldous Huxley

Posted by jjerlich on 31. July 2010

“I set out on my travels knowing, or thinking I knew, how men should live,
how be governed, how educated, what they should believe. I had my views on
every activity of life. Now, on my return, I find myself without any of
these pleasing certainties. . . The better you understand the significance
of any question, the more difficult it becomes to answer it. Those who
attach a high importance to their own opinion should stay at home. When one
is traveling, convictions are mislaid as easily as spectacles, but unlike
spectacles, they are not easily replaced.”

Aldous Huxley after his return home from his first trip around the world
