Five Great Hiking Quotations for Teens

"All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking."
One of the great advantages of being out on the trail with your children is the opportunity to bond with them – to jointly share the beauty of nature, to engage in meaningful conversation. The former will take care of itself, but the latter is up to you.

To that end, here are five great quotations about hiking that you might discuss with your children, especially if they are in upper elementary grades or teenagers:

"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls." - Anais Nin

"Put down the map and get wonderfully lost." - Anonymous

"All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking." - Friedrich Nietzsche

"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness." - John Muir
