It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.
Jimmy Carter

The whole secret of the study of nature
lies in learning how to use one's eyes.
                   -George Sand

"We don't stop hiking because we grow old,
we grow old because we stop hiking." 
                                 -- Finis Mitchell,

"Maybe freedom really is nothing left to lose. You had it once in childhood, when it was okay to climb a tree, to paint a crazy picture and wipe out on your bike, to get hurt. The spirit of risk gradually takes its leave. It follows the wild cries of joy and pain down the wind, through the hedgerow, growing ever fainter. What was that sound? A dog barking far off? That was our life calling to us, the one that was vigorous and undefended and curious."
— Peter Heller

"How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!" 
Emily Dickinson
