... do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am -
a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader,
a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of
yourselves and your lives for pleasure and
adventure. It is not enough to fight for the
land; it is even more important to enjoy it. ...
get out there ... and mess around with your
friends, ramble out  yonder and explore the
forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks,
run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet
sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while
and contemplate the precious stillness, the
lovely, mysterious, and  awesome space.
-Edward Abbey
