Reader comments about this quote:
 -- Jeannine, Wilmington      
This has certainly been my experience. Mark Twain said something similar: "Travel is lethal to prejudice."

Having eaten at another family's table with different race, religion, or culture, my unconscious biases often reveal themselves and dissipate from lack of foundation. I thoroughly enjoy talking with an individual who has taken his stand -- even if I may not agree with it, I respect a person who lives by principle and honor.

    Lamentably, experience reveals that Man, in his constitutional hubris and obduracy, learns only glacially gradually, if at all, from experience.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    My personal experience of: speaking another language and living in other countries, sharing my experiences with the Christ with my many brothers and sisters and my experience(s) with natural law/ liberty / freedom and expression of inalienable rights has witnessed the expiration of prejudice.
     -- Mike, Norwalk
