Travel Quotation 52 – Henry Miller

      Henry Miller, infamous author of the novel, Tropic of Cancer, once wrote, about travel,
 
             "If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."
 
          This is an interesting take on a familiar theme. Miller says that we remain who we are, when we are traveling, but that our destinations simply give us a new or different perspective. Many other authors have expressed a similar sentiment, but phrase the concept differently. I certainly would agree that our essence, our basic self remains the same, no matter what we do or where we go, but travel does give us new information to process and digest and can certainly influence our viewpoint.
