Samuel Clemens, with or without 't', never remember - and otherwise known as Mark Twain, has never been a favourite author of yours truly - that folksy down-home southern american crap simply does not appeal. However, he did say this:
"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."
He was a little optimistic, and definitely not modern P.C. but I think that should be required learning in schools, don't you?
