Finally getting in some mileage! But I messed up my shield wall by double-clicking and now it looks like I've gone about 250 miles further than I have. Oh well, guess I will have to get those miles in to make up for it. Planning on 20 today--bike training ride.

Those are great quotes!

On the road back to Hobbiton now. We just took a slight detour to see the stone trolls--after all, we aren't in such a rush this time!

Fellow Walkers!

Goodness it's already May! I don't know about you but I love inspirational quotes. Sometimes I write one up and stick it on my computer or car visor. Sometimes I use one for meditation or thoughtful walking. Here are some I've come across. I hope you enjoy them.
John Muir
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Michael Korda
Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Henry David Thoreau
Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Albert Camus
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Charles Dickens
The sum of the whole is this: walk and be happy; walk and be healthy. The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Paul Dudley White
A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Hal Borland
All walking is discovery. On foot we take the time to see things whole.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Eddie Cantor
Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Thomas Jefferson
Of all exercises walking is the best.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------


J.R.R. Tolkien All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by frost.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Tom Brown, Jr.
The place where you lose the trail is not necessarily the place where it ends.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Raymond Inmon
If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Lao Tsu
The longest journey begins with a single step.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Friedrich Nietzsche
All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Ruth Westheimer
Our way is not soft grass; it's a mountain path with lots of rocks. But it goes upward, forward, toward the sun.
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Matthew Henry
It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven.



Jessie

It's been a long road get'n from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
I will see my dreams come alive at last.
