«The important thing about travel in foreign lands is that it breaks the speech habits and makes you blab less, and breaks the habitual space-feeling because of different village plans and different landscapes. It is less important that there are different mores, for you counteract these with your own reaction-formations.»
«All mankind lives and each man strives by codes of conduct mutually agreed. Perhaps these codes are good, perhaps they?re bad, it?s only evident they?re codes. Mores bind the race. Coaction then occurs. Thought and motion in accord. A oneness then of purpose and survival so results. But now against that code there is transgression. And so because the code was held, whatever code it was, and man sought comfort in man?s company, he held back his deed and so entered then the bourne in which no being laughs or has a freedom in his heart.»
