Walking Quotes

The best, the most exquisite automobile is a walking stick; and one of the finest things in life is going on a journey with it.

Robert Coates

Walking isn't a lost art - one must, by some means, get to the garage.

Evan Esar

What is there that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man's breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him? Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others have walked; that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before; that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea, to discover a great thought -- an intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a brain-plough had gone over before. To find a new planet, to invent a new hinge, to find a way to make the lightning carry your messages. To be the first -- that is the idea.

Mark Twain

Weekend planning is a prime time to apply the Deathbed Priority Test: On your deathbed, will you wish you would spent more prime weekend hours grocery shopping or walking in the woods with your kids

Louise Lague

Good walking leaves no track behind it.

Lao Tsu

Robert Sweetgall

All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.

Friedrich Nietzsche

When real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep walking.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Your biggest fantasy is walking away from the life (they think) you lead.

Pete Wentz

The idea that all the people locked up in mental hospitals are sane while all the people walking about are mad is merely a literary cliche, put about by people who should be locked up. I assure you there is not much in it. Taken as a whole, the sane are out there the sick are in here. For example you are in here because you have delusions that sane people are put in mental hospitals.

Tom Stoppard

Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopedia; engineering is not merely analysis; engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems; engineering is practicing the art of the organized forcing of technological change... Engineers operate at the interface between science and society...

Dean Gordon Brown

Zen opens a man's eyes to the greatest mystery as it is daily and hourly performed; it enlarges the heart to embrace eternity of time and infinity of space in its every palpitation; it makes us live in the world as if walking in the garden of Eden

D. T. Suzuki

Perhaps passing through the gates of death is like passing quietly through the gate in a pasture fence. On the other side, you keep walking, without the need to look back. No shock, no drama, just the lifting of a plank or two in a simple wooden gate in a clearing. Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices, but just the silent crossing of a meadow.

Mark Helprin

Happy is the man who has acquired the love of walking for its own sake!

W.J. Holland

Walking is good for solving problems - it's like the feet are little psychiatrists.
