Happiness only real when shared.

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

I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong… but to feel strong.

I’m going to paraphrase Thoreau here… rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth.

Some people feel like they don’t deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past.

The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences.

You are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God’s place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things.

When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God’s light shines through you.

I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don’t want one.

When you want something in life, you just gotta reach out and grab it.

The freedom and simple beauty is too good to pass up…

Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, ’cause “the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. – Alexander Supertramp May 1992

It should not be denied that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations. Absolute freedom. And the road has always led west.

What if I were smiling and running into your arms? Would you see then what I see now?
