Random quote of the day

Emailed to me by my brother. I’m not a huge fan of proverbs in general, but this one is decent enough (if it is in fact a proverb and not something made up by the tour guide, like all the “university professors” in Beijing offering tours):

“If you live longer, you learn. But if you travel, you learn more”
– Egyptian proverb
