Wanderlust quotes

"Walking allows us to be in our bodies and in the world without being made busy by them. It leaves us free to think without being wholly lost in our thoughts."

"A lone walker is both present and detached from the world around, more than an audience but less than a participant."

"To hear about walking from people whose only claim on our attention is to have walked far is like getting one's advice on food from people whose only credentials come from winning pie-eating contests."
Wanderlust: A History of Walking by Rebecca Solnit
