Five great quotes for hiking with kids

The trail offers a great opportunity to teach kids lessons about life. For older children and teens, a good quotation might be the way to impart wisdom or at least a good discussion going. Here are five great quotations I like for the trail:

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

“Me think that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.” – Henry DavidThoreau

“After a day's walk everything has twice its usual value.” – George Macauley Trevelyan

“Walking: the most ancient exercise and still the best modern exercise.” – Carrie Latet

“Make your feet your friend.” – J.M. Barrie
