It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. - Aristotle
Monica and I were married in a castle in Scotland and have now lived in Brazil, China and Switzerland in addition to our native USA. We have now lived in St Gallen, Switzerland, for two years.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. - Mark Twain
If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home. - James A. Michener
