Of Walking

Some reflections on walking.


“I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out until sundown: for going out, I found, was really going in.”
–   John Muir

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
–  Henry David Thoreau

“Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.”
–   Henry David Thoreau  

“Thoughts come clearly while one walks.”
–   Thomas Mann 

“Walking is also an ambulation of mind.”
–   Gertel Ehrlich

“All walking is discovery.  On foot we take the time to see things whole.”
–   Hal Borland

“Details of the many walks I made along the crest have blurred, now, into a pleasing tapestry of grass and space and sunlight.”
–  Colin Fletcher
