Thousands of tired,
people are beginning
to find out that going
to the mountains
is going home:
that wilderness
is a necessity....
   -- John Muir


I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
the essential facts
of life,
and see
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
that I had not lived.
   -- Henry D. Thoreau
   Where I Lived,
   & What I Lived For,


Going to the woods
is going home,
for I suppose
we came from
the woods originally.
   -- John Muir


The clearest way
into the universe
is through
a forest wilderness.
   -- John Muir
   John of the Mountains,


For my part
I travel
not to go anywhere,
but to go.
I travel for
travel's sake.
The great affair
is to move.
   -- Robert L. Stevenson
  Travels with a Donkey,


Travel teaches toleration.
   -- Benjamin Disraeli
  Contarini Fleming


He that travels much
knows much.
   -- Thomas Fuller


The world
is a great book,
of which
they who never stir
from home
read only
a page.
   -- Saint Augustine
   354-430 A.D

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