“The ordinary traveler, who never goes off the beaten route and who on this beaten route is carried by others, without himself doing anything or risking anything, does not need to show much more initiative and intelligence than an express package … If this kind of traveler is a writer, he can of course do admirable work, and work of the highest value; but the value comes because he is a writer and observer, not because of any particular credit that attaches to him as a traveler.” – Theodore Roosevelt, Through the Brazilian Wilderness (ed. Dain Borges)
