Suffering men resort to travel in order to forget their burdens, but ruefully find that memory paces the steamer deck beside them, the ego travels in their train, and mind lays its throbbing head upon the same hotel pillow. They may escape from the whole world but, unless and until thought is conquered, they cannot escape from themselves.
