—DAVID BROWER, Executive Director, Sierra Club, (1952–69), 1912-2000

If we are to have broad-thinking men and women of high mentality, of good physique and with a true perspective on life, we must allow our populace a communion with nature in areas of more or less wilderness condition.

A man could be a lover and defender of the wilderness without ever in his lifetime leaving the boundaries of asphalt, powerlines and right-angled surfaces. We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may never need to go there. I may never in my life get to Alaska, for example, but I am grateful that it’s there. We need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope; without it life of the cities would drive all men into crime or drugs or psychoanalysis.

—STEWART W. BRANDBORG, Executive Director, The Wilderness Society, GPO, 1967, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on National Parks and Recreation… on H.R. 4865 and Related Bills to Establish a Nationwide System of Trails, held March 6-7, 1967
