Quotation for the day: Henry Ford

[T]he automobile, by enabling people to get about quickly and easily, gives them a chance to find out what is going on in the world -- which leads them to a larger life that requires more food, more and better goods, more books, more music, more of everything.  The benefits of travel are not confined to those who can take an expensive foreign trip.
Henry Ford quoted in Samuel Crowther, "Henry Ford: Why I Favor Five Days' Work with Six Days' Pay," World's Work, October 1926, 613-6; viewable in its entirety here.
