Travel Quotation 70 – Anatole France

      Former Nobel Prize Laureate (Literature), Anatole France, said,
 
            "Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe."
 
          This is a very interesting statement. It implies that man’s basic nature involves moving from place to place, the old "hunter-gatherer" concept. It also implies that our settling down to form permanent communities and roots was and is in conflict with our true essence. The suggestion is that we should resume our journeys, to discover and restore this balance and harmony. I’m all for that!
