Joys of Hiking

I believe in the joy, wonder, and healing effects of walking in nature unplugged from the daily stressors of life. The exercise and fresh air are nourishing for the body; the beauty and peacefulness of our Berkshire landscapes are restful for the brain and a comfort for the soul.
—Bess Dillman

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
—John Muir

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy amidst the simple beauty of nature. ...I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.  
—Anne Frank

It is impossible to walk rapidly and be unhappy.
—Mother Teresa

A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
—Paul Dudley White

Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
—Edward Abbey
