04/27/07: Quote of the day...


Here's one of my favorite quotes...like some others I've posted, it's not directly photography related but it certainly hits home when I'm out taking nature walks and shooting pictures!


"Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it…but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. If one just keeps on walking everything will be all right."

-- Soren Kierkegaard


Here's something fun...try taking that quote and changing the word 'walk' to 'photograph' and 'walking' to 'photographing.' :)

"Above all, do not lose your desire to photograph. Every day I photograph myself into a state of well-being and photograph away from every illness. I have photographed myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot photograph away from it…but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. If one just keeps on photographing everything will be all right."

(with all due respect to Mr. Kierkegaard!)
