In wilderness is the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau

 

 

In our own time it has been seen... that simple children, roughly brought up in the wilderness, have begun to draw by themselves, impelled by their own natural genius, instructed solely by the example of these beautiful paintings and sculptures of Nature.
Giorgio Vasari
 


In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.
Charles Lindbergh
 


It is like living in a wilderness of mirrors. No fact goes unchallenged.
Bruce Babbitt
 


Italy is definitely where I feel most at home, or alternatively, living in total wilderness, in the bush in Australia.
Noah Taylor
 


Madam Speaker, I have spent more than half my life as a member of the Resources Committee. In that time I have supported numerous wilderness designations. In fact, I cannot recall ever opposing a wilderness bill.
Nick Rahall
 


My ancestors wandered lost in the wilderness for forty years because even in biblical times, men would not stop to ask for directions.
Elayne Boosler
 


My daughter is here in town doing a play, and her dog is staying with us. We live up in the hills, so he has access to thousands of acres of wilderness.
Rene Auberjonois
 


No one should be able to enter a wilderness by mechanical means.
Garrett Hardin
 


None know how often the hand of God is seen in a wilderness but them that rove it for a man's life.

Gayle,

What a gorgeous shot, and the quotes are superb.  It reminds me of when we were traveling in the French country side and staying at a place which had a forest adjoining it.  Ron and I and our two traveling companions set off for a long walk, and the majesty of the surroundings were breathtaking that we all walked in silence for a long, long, time.

Gayle-What a magnificent shot. We are supposed to get snow so our ground could be white but still not as lovely as Fishhawk. My fav quote is the one by Elayne Boosler
