Now I see the secret of making the best person, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
--Walt Whitman

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.
--Sir Rannulph Fiennes

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
--Henry David Thoreau

To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
--Helen Keller
