The world needs more communication like that. Obviously being famous helps, but let's treat each other a little better, take an extra little step in helping each other out.

    It's funny how quickly a bit of curiosity can switch hate and disgust to empathy.

I bought a used copy of The Unbearable Lightness of Being last year. On the inside of the front cover was a hand-written note, as this book had, at one point, been purchased by somebody for a friend. It read:

    Travel is the antidote to prejudice.

And then a best wishes statement. Compassion is the antidote to hate.
