Step by Step - by stevemccurry


One step at a time is good walking.
- Chinese proverb

Solvitur ambulando
(To solve a problem, walk around.)
- St. Jerome


All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.
- Friedrich Nietzsche

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking.
Angels whisper to those who walk.
- Raymond Inmon

My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.
- Aldous Huxley

New York, United States
Above all do not lose your desire to walk.

Everyday I walk myself into a state of well being and walk away from every illness.

I have walked myself into my best thoughts and I know of no thought so
burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.

... if one keeps on walking everything will be all right.
- Soren Kierkegaard

A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy,
but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
-Paul Dudley White, M.D.

Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.
-Henry David Thoreau

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like falling leaves.
- John Muir

Details of the many walks I made along the crest have blurred, now, into a
pleasing tapestry of grass and space and sunlight.
- Colin Fletcher

Walking is a man's best medicine.
- Hippocrates

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

Mountains have a way of dealing with overconfidence.
- Nemann Buhl

Walking I am unbound, and find that precious unity of life and imagination,
that silent outgoing self, which is so easy to loose,
but which a high moments seems to start up again from the deepest rhythms of my own body.
How often have I had this longing for an infinite walk - of going unimpeded,
until the movement of my body as I walk fell into the flight of streets under my feet -
until I in my body and the world in its skin of earth were blended into a single act of knowing.
- Alfred Kazin, The Open Street


Walking shares with making and working that
crucial element of engagement of the body and the mind with the world,
of knowing the world through the body and the body through the world.
- Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking


With the first step, the number of shapes the walk might take is infinite,
but then the walk begins to define itself as it goes along, though freedom remains total with each step:
any tempting side road can be turned into an impulse, or any wild patch of woods can be explored.
The pattern of the walk is to come true, is to be recognized, discovered.
- A.R. Ammons, A Poem is a Walk

With beauty before me, may I walk
With beauty behind me, may I walk
With beauty above me, may I walk
With beauty below me, may I walk
With beauty all around me, may I walk
Wandering on the trail of beauty, may I walk
- Navajo: Walking Meditation

There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country.
A fine landscape is like a piece of music; it must be taken at the right tempo.
- Paul Scott Mowrer

Steve McCurry, Nepal
I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain - and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.
- Robert Frost
