“The mountains are calling and I must go.” -John Muir
“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” - Robert Frost
“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.” -Edward Abbey
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins
“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quiestest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” – Pat Conroy
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
