“I am alarmed when it happens that I have walked a mile into the woods bodily without getting there in spirit. In my afternoon walks I would fain forget all my morning occupations and my obligations to society. But it sometimes happens that I cannot easily shake off the village. The thought of some work will run in my head and I am not where my body is–I am out of my senses. What business have I in the woods, if I am thinking of something out of the woods?“
-Henry David Thoreau
“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… We must do that which we think we cannot.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
