Need encouragement?  Consider these wise conclusions from experienced travelers. Then ponder their words, on foot… 

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

       “I have walked myself into my best thoughts.” (Søren Kierkegaard)

       “The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts.  This creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it.”  (Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust)

       “It is solved by walking.”  (St. Augustine)
