WRITINGS AND TEACHINGS

KENNETH WESTHUES
Professor Emeritus
University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for July 2014:

Classic:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
— Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad, 1869.

 

Direct:
To migrate, especially alone, to an alien environment full of people with strange ways, and to be forced to integrate oneself — that is the kind of move that sets the mind to working inventively.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 453.

 

Garden moment for July: discovered a century ago in the wild near Anna, Illinois, the Annabelle Hydrangea now grows around the world.
