The Elders Speak:
A walk is a vacation that doesn't cost a cent.
Aaron Sussman and Ruth Goode, The Magic of Walking
Of all exercises walking is the best.
All walking is discovery. On foot we take the time to see things whole.
An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
Henry David Thoreau
Meandering leads to perfection.
Walking gives us back our senses to renew our acquaintance with the Earth and our neighbours.
Keith C. Heidorn
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Robert Frost, Two Roads
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
an early spring garden--
If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.
Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.
Until you have walked, really walked, the pleasures of walking will remain a mystery. Until you feel the rhythm of your muscles, the touch of the wind on your face, until you have seen the changing scenery or smelled the blossoms of spring, until you have experienced the peace of mind that a good walk can give you, you will not know what you have been missing.
Keith C. Heidorn
My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.
Thatís the best thing about walking, the journey itself. It doesnít matter much whether you get where youíre going or not. Youíll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right where you started.
Edward Abbey, The Journey Home
