Com into the mountains, dear friend, leave society and take no one with you but your true self. Get close to nature you everyday games will be insignificant. Notice the clouds spontaneously forming patterns and try to do that with your life.
You can never get enough of nature. To be surrounded by it is to be stilled. It salves the heart. The mountains, the trees, the endless plains. The moon, the myriad of stars. Every man can be made quiet and complete. ~ Arthur Burns, The Proposition
"Wildness is a necessity. I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.
"I find no coincidence in the fact that some of the grandest revelations in my entire life have come during periods of total isolation surrounded only by the mountains, the trees, the sea, and the light.
