"Ann Tyler wrote a novel entitled 'The Accidental Tourist' that is about a man who is forced to travel but does not want to have any new experiences. He wants to guarantee his safety and security by making sure that everything is predictable and familiar. My goal on my trips was just the opposite: not to do anything too foolish, but to be open to an endless round of new experiences and possibilities." -Edward A. Malloy, CSC, President Emeritus
