“The difference between a path and a road is not only the obvious one. A path is little more than a habit that comes with knowledge of a place. It is a sort of ritual of familiarity. As a form, it is a form of contact with a known landscape. It is not destructive. It is the perfect adaptation, through experience and familiarity, of movement to place; it obeys the natural contours; such obstacles as it meets it goes around.”  – Wendell Barry

“It takes sometime to understand that life can’t always go your way. People move on and change their minds, and leave you stranded. But you have to remember there’s always a road that will lead you to wonderful places unseen, to people unheard and stories untold.”  – Luisa Henao

“To preserve the silence within–amid all the noise. To remain open and quiet, a moist humus in the fertile darkness where the rain falls and the grain ripens–no matter how many tramp across the parade ground in whirling dust under an arid sky.”  – Dag Hammarskjold
