So you walk...

"How can you explain that you need to know that the trees are still there, and the hills and the sky? Anyone knows they are. How can you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm, the rhythm of the day and the season instead of the hour and the minute? No, you cannot explain. So you walk."

--Author unknown, from New York Times editorial, "The Walk", 25 October 1967


"Walks. The body advances while the mind flutters around it like a bird."

--Jules Renard


"If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk."

--Raymond Inmon

One reason I walk...

"Solvitur ambulando." ("It is solved by walking.")

--Saint Jerome
