Quotes on Walking

Motto: The real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle. - Thic h Nhat Hanh

Aries

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see. - John Burroughs

Taurus
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. - John Muir

Gemini
We are under-exercised as a nation. We look, instead of play. We ride, instead of walk. Our existence deprives us of the minimum of physical activity essential for healthy living. - John F. Kennedy

Cancer
No wealth can buy the requisite leisure, freedom, and independence which are the capital in this profession. It comes only by the grace of God. It requires a direct dispensation from Heaven to become a walker. You must be born into a family of walkers... - Henry David Thoreau, Walking

Leo
Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking. - Antonio Machado

Virgo
The body's habituation to walking as normal stems from the good old days. It was the bourgeois form of locomotion: physical demythologization, free of the spell of hieratic pacing, roofless wandering, breathless flight. Human dignity insisted on the right to walk, a rhythm not extorted from the body by command or terror. The walk, the stroll, were private ways of passing time, the heritage of the feudal promenade in the nineteenth century. - Theodor W. Adorno

Libra
All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Scorpio
If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are. For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing. - Saint Augustine

Sagittarius
The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme
pleasure comes from the talk. - Mark Twain

Capricorn
My body is dry and knotty, and not tall. My soul is faint-hearted and hides itself in literary corners; it is disturbed and fearful; it seeks its way through harsh brambles and entangled in them. Its habits are similar. To gnaw bones, to eat dry bread, to taste spiced and bitter things is a joy to me. To walk over rugged paths, uphill and through thickets, is a holiday treat for me... - Johannes Kepler

Aquarius
There is this to be said for walking: It's the one mode of human locomotion by which a man proceeds on his own two feet, upright, erect, as a man should be, not squatting on his rear haunches like a frog. - Edward Abbey

Pisces
Walks. The body advances, while the mind flutters around it like a bird. - Jules Renard
