“No, life cannot be understood flat on a page.  It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... We get one story, you and I, and one story alone.  God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution.  It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?" 
―Donald Miller, Through Painted Deserts

Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds by Abigail on Grooveshark

"Come to the woods, for here is rest.  There is no repose like that of the green deep woods. Here grow the wallflower and the violet.  The squirrel will come and sit upon your knee, the logcock will wake you in the morning.  Sleep in forgetfulness of all ill.  Of all the upness accessible to mortals, there is no upness comparable to the mountains."
-John Muir
