WALKING
[ Also see Exercise Recreation Rest Travel Traveling Vagrant ]

The Parisan, sauntering the streets idly, is as often a man in despair as a lounger.
      - Honore de Balzac

I dressed and went for a walk--determined not to return until I took in what Nature had to offer.
      - Raymond Carver, This Morning

The sum of the whole is this: walk and be happy, walk and be healthy. "The best of all ways to lengthen our days" is not, as Mr. Thomas Moore has it, "to steal a few hours from night, my love;" but, with leave be it spoken, to walk steadily and with a purpose. The wandering man knows of certain ancients, far gone in years, who have staved off infirmities and dissolution by earnest walking,--hale fellows close upon eighty and ninety, but brisk as boys.
      - Charles Dickens

If you are for a merry jaunt, I will try, for once, who can foot it farthest.
      - John Dryden

Walking is also an ambulation of mind.
      - Gretel Ehrlich

Walking is man's best medicine.
      - Hippocrates of Iphicrates

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

He moved in a way that suggested he was attempting the world speed record for the nonchalant walk.
      - Terry Pratchett

Walking is the natural recreation for a man who desires not absolutely to suppress his intellect but to turn it out to play for a season.
      - Sir Leslie Stephen

The art of walking is at once suggestive of the dignity of man. Progressive motion alone implies power, but in almost every other instance it seems a power gained at the expense of self-possession.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman
