Walking With The Heart

by solitary walker

“The difference between a good walker and a bad one is that one walks with his heart, and the other with his feet. As long as the heart is eager and willing, the strain on the body is not very important: and it is only at night, when his long journey is done, that a man’s muscles feel swollen and stiff. This means that no man should go forth as a wanderer unless he is a true lover of Nature; for it is the everchanging scenery that keeps his head light until the end of his day’s walk.” WH Davies The Autobiography Of A Super-tramp
