Travel Quotation 38 – Mohammed

       Imagine, a quote about travel from the founder of Islam!
               "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have traveled."
          This statement seems to indicate that even Mohammed equated travel with education, echoing a tenet long held by many. In other words, book learning is no substitute for the sophistication and knowledge derived from experience and that experience is best obtained by traveling to new locations and exposure to new ideas. This great religious leader measures a man by the extent of his travels. What an endorsement for my wanderlust!
