Poems #2 - A man needs to travel

Last week I did a presentation about the exchange experience to candidates of an AIESEC exchange program between Australia and Egypt and used this brilliant quote by Amyr Klink, a great Brazilian sailor / traveller (official site and pictures - http://www.amyrklink.com.br/). Enjoy it!

"A man needs to travel. On his own risk, not through stories, images, books or TV. Needs to travel on his own, with his eyes and feet, to understand what is his.

This way, one day he can plant his own trees and value them. Know the cold to enjoy the warm. And the other way around. Feel the distance and lack of protection in order to feel comfortable under his own roof.

A man needs to travel to places he doesn't know to break this arrogance that makes us believe in the world as we imagine it, and not as it is or as it could be; that make us professors and doctors of what we haven't seen, when we should be pupils and simply go and see...”

Amyr Klink, Brazilian explorer

"Paraty, entre dois polos"
Com certeza um dos livros que me inspirou, Gabi.
Muito bom você usar uma quote como essa. De um homem simples, comum!
Que tem a poesia do dia-dia tão próxima de qualquer um quanto se queira.
Quem lê viaja e aprende p/ onde e quando voltar :-]
Beijo grandeeee
