Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen
The wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned to ask.
Now I see the secret of making the best person, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.
Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
Alexander Supertramp McCandless
No matter the risks we take, we always consider the end to be too soon, even though in life, more than anything else, quality should be more important than quantity.
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
All good things are wild and free.
And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.
If you’re going through hell, keep going.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach of us more than we can ever learn from books.
A bad day camping is still better than a good day working.
The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.
The environment, after all, is where we all meet, where we all have a mutual interest. It is one thing that all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on what we can become.
Lady Bird Johnson
Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Walking: the most ancient exercise and still the best modern exercise.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Returning home is the most difficult part of long-distance hiking. You have grown outside the puzzle and your piece no longer fits.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.
Rosalia de Castro
If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.
Days of slow walking are very long: they make you live longer, because you have allowed every hour, every minute, every second to breathe, to deepen, instead of filling them up by straining the joints.
