Another famous visitor from the West, who was fascinated by the Kumbh Mela, was Mark Twain. After visiting the Kumbh of 1895, he said, “It is wonderful, the power of a faith, that can make multitudes of the old and weak and the young and frail enter without hesitation or complaint upon such incredible journeys and endure the resultant miseries without repining. It is done in love, or it is done in fear; I do not know which it is. No matter what the impulse is, the act born of it is beyond imagination, marvelous to our kind of people, the cold whites.

"I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't...The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further."

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

In religion and politics , people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination , from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue , but have taken them at second hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
