7summits' Wise Words:
"There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail, knowing that everything you need is on your back. It is a confidence in having left the inessentials behind and of entering a world of natural beauty that has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a deadweight. The person with the fewest possessions is the freest. Thoreau was right. -- Paul Theroux, "The Happy Isles of Oceana: Paddling the Pacific" (more quotes) .
