Quote of the Day: Freya Stark

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a quote of the day. But I love this one by Dame Freya Stark, a travel writer who was the first Westerner to travel through many areas of the Middle East, and so I will share it with you. Enjoy.

“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.”
