John Muir Quotes

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” — John Muir

John Muir liked to hike and wander in the wilderness. It is easy to understand why after a trip to the Sierras or Sequoia National Forest.

The quote above is simple yet profound. I find that of all the activities, hiking through the forest brings the greatest measure of peace.

Yet is it the peace that I am feeling or are the worries of this world falling off like autumn leaves?

One thing is for sure …

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
– John of the Mountains (1938)
