Words about walking...

Week 20 of the Bracebridge Photo Project

We live in a fast-paced society.  Walking slows us down.  
~Robert Sweetgall

The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking.  The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk.  
~Mark Twain

[Hiking] is the best workout!... You can hike for three hours and not even realize you're working out.
~Jamie Luner

The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand.
~Frederick L. Knowles
