Walking Quotes

"The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is yet time, will be blessed both in mind and body."

Yes, it's the man himself, Alfred Wainwright


I will exchange a city for a sunset

The tramp of legions for a wind's wild cry

And all the braggard thrusts of steel triumphant

For one far summit blue against the sky

It Was Upon

It was upon a July evening,

At a stile I stood looking along a path

Over the country by a second Spring

Drenched pefect green again. 'The lattermath

Will be a fine one.' So the stranger said,

A wandering man. Albeit I stood at rest

Flushed with desire I was. The earth out-spread

Like meadows of the future I possessed.

And as an unaccomplished prophecy

Of a score years, when these fields are by me

Never to be recrossed, now I recall,

This July eve, and question wondering

What of the lattermath to this hoar Spring?


Edward Thomas

On the Go

undressed and assume an undignified position, fearing flora, fauna or
