The Spirit of Sauntering: Thoreau on the Art of Walking and the Perils of a Sedentary Lifestyle | Brain Pickings

“When we walk, we naturally go to the fields and woods: what would become of us, if we walked only in a garden or a mall?
[…]
Give me a wildness whose glance no civilization can endure — as if we lived on the marrow of koodoos devoured raw.
[…]
Life consists with wildness. The most alive is the wildest.
[…]
All good things are wild and free.”

-Henry David Thoreau
