On Travel, James Boswell, Samuel Johnson: "He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies..."



The original manuscript passage and quotation

'As the Spanish proverb says, "He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies must carry the wealth of the Indies with him". So it is in travelling, a man must carry knowledge with him if he would bring home knowledge'.

Inscribed (in part) above Union Station, Washington DC.
