Going to the woods and the wild places has little to do with recreation, and much to do with creation. For the wilderness is the creation in its pure state, its processes unqualified by the doings of people. A man in the woods comes face to face with the creation, of which he must begin to see himself a part—a much less imposing part than he thought. And seeing that the creation survives all wishful preconceptions about it, that it includes him only upon its own sovereign terms, that he is not free except in his proper place in it, then he may begin, perhaps, to take a hand in the creation of himself.

—WENDELL BERRY, The Unknown Wilderness: An Essay on Kentucky’s Red River Gorge, 1971

I am not going to advocate … the abandoning of the improved modes of travel; but I am going to brag as lustily as I can on behalf of the pedestrian, and show how all the shining angels second and accompany the man who goes afoot, while all the dark spirits are ever looking out for a chance to ride.

—JOHN BURROUGHS, US Essayist, Naturalist, 1837–1921

.…we’re at a critical stage in the world. We have reached the point where we need to think about what kind of environmental future we’re going to have. I believe we can live in harmony with our environment; we don’t have to go out and pave every square inch. But we need a new ethic for living in our world. That’s why I do what I do (1988).
