The mountains are calling and I must go.
(April 21, 1838 - December 24, 1914)
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
Tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe.
Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
One of the most important lessons that experience teaches is that, on the whole, success depends more upon character than upon either intellect or fortune

Loving all of it even while he had to hate some of it because he knows now that you don't love because: you love despite; not for the virtues, but despite the faults.
