93,270.  In God’s wildness lies the hope of the world – the great fresh unblighted, unredeemed wilderness.  The galling harness of civilization drops off, and wounds heal ere we are aware.  John Muir

 

 

93,271.  Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness.  All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.  John Muir

 

 

2,702.  The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. (Universe & Forest & Wilderness)  John Muir

 

 

4,095.  Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.  (Earth & Mountain & Wilderness)  John Muir

 

 

93,282.  There is a love of wild nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love showing itself whether recognized or no, and however covered by cares and duties.  (Wild & Nature)  John Muir        

 

 

93,283.  Nothing truly wild is unclean.  John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra 

 

 

92,458.  The Utah deserts and plateaus and canyons are not a country of big returns, but a country of spiritual healing, incomparable for contemplation, meditation, solitude, quiet, awe, peace of mind and body.  We were born of wilderness, and we respond to it more than we sometimes realize.  We depend upon it increasingly for relief from the termite life we have created.  Factories, power plants, resorts, we can make anywhere.  Wilderness, once we have given it up, is beyond our reconstruction.  (Utah & Wildness)  Wallace Stegner, Wilderness at the Edge 1990

 

 

92,969.  As I walked through the wilderness of the world.  (Walk & Wilderness)  John Bunyan, The Pilgrim’s Progress 1678

93,275.  Thou art too wild, too rude and bold of voice –

Parts that become thee happily enough,

And in such eyes as ours appear not faults;

But where thou art not known, why, there they show

Something too liberal.  Pray thee, take pain

To allay with some cold drops of modesty

Thy skipping spirit.  William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice II ii 173-179, Bassiano to Graziano

 

 

93,276.  We need the tonic of wildness ... At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.  We can never have enough of nature.  (Wild & Nature)  Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods 

 

 

93,277.  You were once wild here.  Don't let them tame you.  Isadora Duncan

 

 

6,341.  In the wild struggle for existence, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in the silly hope of keeping our place.  (Self & Existence & Wild & Rubbish)  Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

 

 

93,278.  And there I shut her wild, wild eyes

With kisses four.  (Wild & Kiss)  John Keats
