ALWAYS OPINIONATED. OFTEN CONTRARIAN. RARELY ACCURATE.
"So this young man goes off…goes off to study theology. After two years, on the way home he needs to cross a river so he hires a local boatman and gives him a few dollars to row him across. The guy is rowing and he says, ‘Where have you been?’ ‘Studying theology,’ ‘What did you learn?’ The guys says, ‘Important things—philosophy, theology.’ ‘Did they teach you how to swim?’ ‘No, only important things.’ ‘Ahhh too bad, the boat is sinking.’ The end.” Dan John
There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail, knowing that everything you need is on your back. It is a confidence in having left the inessentials behind and of entering a world of natural beauty that has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a dead weight. The person with the fewest possessions is the freest. Thoreau was right. PAUL THEROUX (via joshuasegraves)
