No one
has yet fathomed
just what constitutes
It is never
the present,
always the future.
A trip
is a journey
into the future.
A hunting
for happiness.
   -- Dr. Wilhelm
   The Depths
   of the Soul


A traveller
without observation
is a bird
without wings.
   -- Saadi


The use
of travelling
is to regulate
by reality,
instead of thinking
how things may be,
to see them
as they are.
   -- Samuel Johnson
   Anecdotes of
   Samuel Johnson,


This is
a beautiful country.
   -- John Brown
   Remark as he
   rode to gallows
   seated on his coffin,


The wise traveler,
the self-indulgent,
and the happy one,
is he
who never looks
at his time-table
and hides his watch.
   -- John M. Brown

In God's wilderness lies the hope of the world,
the great, fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness.
— John Muir 1838-1914, Alaska Wilderness, 1890
