Something from Clifton

I copied this out of a book, after class on the day I was almost imprisoned ... all the while wondering if copying quotes from a book that you have no intention of buying might also be a blue uniformed, show me your passport type offence. It made the quote so much more appropriate.

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.
Clifton Fadiman

That is such a perfect quote I want to get it tatooed on my arm so that I can wack people with it when they complain about things being 'not like home'
