1: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” ~ Helen Keller

2: Free is the bird in the air, And the fish where the river flows; Free is the deer in the wood, And the gipsy wherever he goes, Hurrah! And the gipsy wherever he goes. Horace Kephart

5: There is a dash of the gipsy in every one of us who is worth his salt. Horace Kephart

7: Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.” ~!~Ralph Waldo Emerson

10: The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” John Muir

11: lways a New Adventure | The muffled syllables that Nature speaks Fill us with deeper longing for her word; She hides a meaning that the spirit seeks, She makes a sweeter music than is heard.” George Santayana

13: We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” Henry David Thoreau

15: Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.” John Lubbock

19: “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” John Muir

20: And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. Khalil Gibran

21: I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. George Washington Carver

22: BWCA | “ | A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” Henry David Thoreau

25: When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” John Muir

26: The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark. John Muir

28: Everything in nature is lyrical in its ideal essence, tragic in its fate, and comic in its existence. George Santayana | Who needs bread?

29: If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.” Rainer Maria Rilke

31: "You know... theoretically, you should be able to paddle right down the middle of this river." Cousin John

32: Surely there is something in the unruffled calm of nature that overawes our little anxieties and doubts; the sight of the deep-blue sky and the clustering stars above seems to impart a quiet to the mind.” Jonathan Edwards

33: "I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." John Muir | Good Times
