"We are animal in our blood and in our skin. We were not born for pavements and escalators but for thunder and mud. More. We are animal not only in body but in spirit. Our minds are the minds of wild animals. Artists, who remember their wildness better than most, are animal artists, lifting their heads to sniff a quick wild scent in the air, and they know it unmistakably, they know the tug of wildness to be followed through your life is buckled by that strange and absolute obedience."
- Jay Giffiths (Wild: An Elemental Journey)
"All we have, it seems to me, is the beauty of art and nature and life, and the love which that beauty inspires." - Edward Abbey ( The Journey Home)
And that's everything.
