"At present, in this vicinity, the best part of the land is not private property; the landscape not owned, and the walker enjoys comparative freedom. But possibly the day will come when it will be partitioned off into so-called pleasure-grounds, in which a few will take a narrow and exclusive pleasure only--when fences shall be multiplied and man-traps and other engines invented to confine men to the public road, and walking over the surface of the earth shall be construed to be trespassing on some gentleman's grounds. To enjoy a thing exclusively is commonly to exclude yourself from the true enjoyment of it."
-- Henry David Thoreau
"Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
