All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Walking as Creative Fuel

Walking as Creative Fuel

Jan 27, 2018-- Over one hundred years ago, Scottish writer Kenneth Grahame, author of The Wind in the Willows, penned an essay entitled, "The Fellow that Goes Alone" about the simplest of activities that can yield the most creative thoughts: walking. In this ode to ambulating, Maria Popova weaves together quotes and excerpts from literature's big proponents of the timeless exercise, creating a piece that celebrates a walk's ability to awaken mind and spirit: "Here and now, the mind has shaken off its harness, is snorting and kicking up heels like a colt in a meadow." Imagination comes alive while walking alone. With no one to talk to, no one to share, it can run wild in the "country of the mind." Enjoy this tribute to a simple pastime with many benefits that most people can enjoy. (10139 reads)
