The 06/21/13 Joy Jar

21 Jun


Moi wants to accomplish a couple of things this summer. One a spend time writing and the other is to get healthy. Walking is not only great exercise, but it seems to stimulate one’s creativity. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the art of long walks.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
Henry David Thoreau

I’m a slow walker, but I never walk back.
Abraham Lincoln

Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very fast.
Thomas Jefferson

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
Nelson Mandela

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
John Muir

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols
