     “They can’t see me, sir. They can’t see me because they have a preconceived impression. They look at this and think: ‘Oh, you poor bastard, you’re homeless. Here’s a cup of coffee. See you later.’ This carriage is a rolling library. I’ve got calculus, psychology, sociology, and the ancient histories of the Babylonians, the Egyptians, and the Phoenicians and a bunch of stuff they don’t teach at Harvard and MIT. But they can’t see me, sir. They live in a dream world and walk around with their chests all pumped up: ‘Oh, Harvard alumni. Harvard endowment. Money, money, money, money.’  Who is on their money, sir? Who were the presidents who are on their money? Who were they when they were alive? That’s right! Slave owners. Today, it’s no longer a Black and White thing—it’s a class thing. Everybody is in slavery, even those who think they are free. They took the chains off your hands and put them on your mind.”

“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.”

— Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)
