If you want to go far, go together.

“Walking is the exercise that needs no gym. It is the prescription without medicine, the weight control without diet, the cosmetic that is sold in no drugstore. It is the tranquilizer without a pill, the therapy without a psychoanalyst, the fountain of youth that is no legend. A walk is the vacation that does not cost a cent.”
– Aaron Sussman & Ruth Goode, The Magic of Walking
“In the morning a man walks with his whole body; in the evening, only with his legs.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“A pedestrian is a man in danger of his life. A walker is a man in possession of his soul.”
– David McCord
“When you have worn out your shoes, the strength of the sole leather has passed into the fibre of your body. I measure your health by the number of shoes and hats and clothes you have worn out. He is the richest man who pays the largest debt to his shoemaker”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1851
Now shall I walk or shall I ride?

“The distance is nothing, only the first step is difficult”
– Madame du Deffand
