The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue.
Hidden in the glorious wildness like unmined gold.
How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!
Men use care in purchasing a horse, and are neglectful in choosing friends
To some, beauty seems but an accident of creation: to Muir it was the very smile of God.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
