Inspiration

PERIPATETIC

  • “Vagabonding is not a lifestyle, nor is it a trend. It’s just an uncommon way of looking at life — a value adjustment from which action naturally follows. And, as much as anything, vagabonding is about time — our only real commodity — and how we choose to use it.” –Rolf Potts
  • “Nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future.” –Chris McCandless
  • “It was boundless delight…indefinite wandering through strange places.” –Jack London
  • “Llevo en el cuerpo una condena
    Que siempre me echa a caminar
    Me llaman el desaparecido
    Que cuando llega ya se ha ido
    Volando vengo, volando voy
    Deprisa deprisa a rumbo perdido.” Manu Chao
  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain
  • “Not all those who wander are lost.” –J.R.R. Tolkien
  • “To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.” –Freya Stark
  • “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” –Lao Tzu

NATURE

  • “The idea of wilderness needs no defense. It only needs more defenders.” –Edward Abbey
  • “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” –Aldo Leopold
  • “It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.” –Edward Abbey

CULTURE

  • No quiero ser español, ni valenciano, ni europeo.  Quiero ser mundero – ciudadano del mundo.” Jorge el camionero de Elche

NURTURE

  • “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” –Michael Pollan
  • “The choices that we make today as to the way we treat each other, the way we raise our children, the kinds of families and communities we create, will determine how the future unfolds. If we treat each other one way, we can cultivate people driven by a death urge, who are despondent and mean. If we treat each other another way, if we encourage and uphold our essential goodness and capacity for loving connection, we can nurture a society of people who are healthy and whole and whose lives will bring healing, peace, and joy to those they touch” –John Robbins
  • “Let us cultivate our garden.” –Voltaire

HAPPINESS

  • “Open up your eyes and look within, are you satisfied with the life you’re livin?”  –Bob Marley
  • “I can gather all the news I need on the weather report.”  –Paul Simon
  • “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” –Thoreau
