Carry it with us…

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

When I travel, I can always gauge another person’s happiness and disposition by how they order a morning coffee.  Simply travelling a few hundred miles will not transform you – it just magnifies your character.

  1. Interesting thought. The things we retain in our minds and think about contributes positively or negatively to who we are. Pretty serious. Thinking about those things that are kind, good, and beautiful as we travel–a good thing.

    • I agree that is is serious. We are what are thoughts are. One of my favourite verses come from Philippians 4:8. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
