Sunday Papers: Robert Byron

“A spiritual necessity…travel must rank with the more serious forms of endeavor. Admittedly there are other ways of making the world’s acquaintance. But the traveler is a slave to his senses; his grasp of a fact can only be complete when reinforced by sensory evidence; he can know the world, in fact, only when he sees, hears, and smells it.”

– First Russia, then Tibet (1933)

On the turntable:  Harry Connick Jr., "Easy to Love"
