Here's a few from my man John Muir. ..
((Thanks be to this Scotsman who loved the Sierra's so much he helped to found Sequoia and Yosemite National parks))

*"“The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”
*"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."
*"The mountains are calling and I must go."
*"Between every two pine trees there is a door to a new way of life."
*"In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks."
*"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."
*"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."
*"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in."
*"Most people are on the world, not in it. ”
*“Going to the mountains is going home.”
*"A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves. No wonder the hills and groves were God's first temples, and the more they are cut down and hewn into cathedrals and churches, the farther off and dimmer seems the Lord himself"
