Inspirational quote from ‘Our National Parks’ by John Muir

The inspirational quote on the website is taken from a piece that appears in a book written by John Muir in 1901, here’s a longer extract to enjoy:

‘Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature’s sources never fail.’
