Quotes on world travel

Bacon's *New Atlantis,*
the denizens of Solomon's House reveal that they too have undertaken global voyages of discovery, only in the search for pure knowledge, and not for the acquisition of wealth and dominions: ""But thus, you see, we maintain a trade, not for gold, silver or jewels.. nor for any other commodity of matter, but only for God's first creature which was light"
