Soul Food

‘It is imperative to maintain portions of the wilderness untouched
so that a tree will rot where it falls,

a waterfall will pour its curve without generating electricity,

a trumpeter swan may float on uncontaminated water

– and moderns may at least see what their ancestors knew
in their nerves and blood.’

~Bernand De Voto

Wild Love

“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love,
you would be unwilling to let it go.”

~Terry Tempest Williams

Pathless Pleasure

Woods and Stream

 

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, 
There is a rapture on the lonely shore, 
There is society where none intrudes, 
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar: 
I love not Man the less, but Nature more…” 

~Lord Byron
