“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
– Guillaume Apollinaire
“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
