There is a quote that as near as I can tell is universally attributed to St. Augustine.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.”
However, I am unable to find citation as to exactly where he wrote this (as I’d like to read it in context (I’m not finding it with Google Books and searching various writings of Augustine).
So if anybody can point me to that (or whoever originally wrote it, if the attribution is incorrect, it wouldn’t be the first universally wrong well known quote by any means). As a bonus, if it could be pointed out in the original Latin as well that would be helpful as well.
Thanks, the Wade source simply attributes it to Augustine without any further sourcing. Yes, I used quotes. I’m not having any difficulty finding people who attribute it to Augustine, just finding any indication of where he wrote it (if he actually did).
Superluser, thanks as well.
On with the search, the earliest attribution to Augustine I find in Google Books is 1906 so at least it isn’t a recent (to us, it is pretty recent compared to Augustine) thing.
