“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” – Edward Abbey
One of My Heroes
Edward Abbey’s above quote is possibly my favorite of all quotes. If you’re one of those like me, who seeks out Mother Nature at every opportunity, I’m sure you’ll understand.
Abbey, author of the “Monkey Wrench Gang,” “Desert Solitaire,” “Fire on the Mountain,” and others, also said:
“Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.”
“The tragedy of modern war is that the young men die fighting each other – instead of their real enemies back home in the capitals.”
“Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit.”
“Society is like a stew. If you don’t stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top.”
