freedom, wilderness, no expectations, no regrets...
We can have wilderness without freedom; we can have wilderness without human life at all; but we cannot have freedom without wilderness.
- Edward Abbey.
Wilderness is the raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization. Wilderness was never a homogenous raw material. It was very diverse. The differences in the product are known as cultures. The rich diversity of the world's cultures reflects a corresponding diversity. In the wilds that gave them birth.
- Aldo Lepold
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
- Sir John Lubbock
The wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned to ask.
- Nancy Newhall
In wildness is the preservation of the world.
and it's ironic, because really, i want to be in nyc. i think i just know i have to wait for ny, so i've moved on to wanting something in the mean time that is more attainable. (like living in the woods...?)
