“Travel is fatal to prejudice”: a web comic

There’s a great quote by the writer Mark Twain that goes:

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.

Gavin Aung Than, a freelance illustrator in Melbourne, Australia memorably brought those words to life in this web comic on Zen Pencils: Mark Twain, an educational journey. The Zen Pencils website is full of gems like this. Than takes inspirational quotes and transforms them into graphic parables about the important lessons in life.
