Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.
--Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher.
A view of Roan Mountain from the Appalachian Trail four years ago today. This quote reminded me of Steve Jobs' commencement address at Stanford, in which he challenged graduates to "Stay hungry, stay foolish." Definitely worth watching.
