John Muir Quotes on Wilderness and Nature

"In God's wilderness lies the hope of the world – the great fresh,
unblighted, unredeemed wilderness. The galling harness of
civilization drops off, and the wounds heal ere we are aware."

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are
beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that
wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are
useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as
fountains of life."

"I care to live, only to entice people to look at nature's liveliness."

"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness."

"Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world."
