Travel: the great leveler

Nifty quote for your consideration:

No man is brave that has never walked a hundred miles.  If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name.  Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass.  A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet introspection.

From The Wise Man’s Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss.
