5 Outdoor Quotes that Will Inspire You to Get Outside! | CloudLine Apparel

Even the most dedicated adventurers sometimes need a little inspiration to get outside. With that in mind, we've gathered five of our favorite outdoor quotes to inspire you to make time for adventure. These are the quotes we aspire to live by. Quotes we recite when we are stuck at work and wish we were hiking. So get inspired, pull on your favorite pair of hiking socks and hit the trail!


1.  Roberto Assagioli on Adventure

There is no certainty in life, but we can make any situation into an adventure with the correct approach. 

There is no certainty there is only adventure - Roberto Assagioli 

"There is no certainty, there is only adventure."  - Roberto Assagioli


2. John Muir on Priorities 

John Muir is one our heroes. We have him to thank for the preservation of several of our national parks and wilderness areas. It's safe to say that millions of people have taken up hiking, camping, and backpacking because of John Muir.

John Muir Quote

"I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news!" - John Muir


3. Anatoli Boukreev on Spirituality

A person doesn't need to be religious to feel spiritual in the mountains. For us being in pristine wilderness brings peace, rejuvenation, and perspective. Go for a hike this weekend and see if you agree. 

Anatoli Boukreev On the Value of Mountains

"Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion."  - Anatoli Boukreev 


4. Henry David Thoreau on Nature

 Thoreau embraced living simply and closely with nature. We think he had the right idea. 

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees - Henry David Thoreau

"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees."  - Henry David Thoreau


5. Jack Kerouac on Work Life Balance

Kerouac authored a collection of novels that have inspired many a young adventurer. We all make excuses for why we can't make it to the mountains. Next time you find yourself making excuses as to why you can't go hiking, just make it happen. 

Because in the end you wont remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain! - Jack Kerouac

"Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain!"  - Jack Kerouac

In the past, hiking and being outdoors with people of other backgrounds, cultures, languages, and countries has been an incredible experience. It is not all relative to how much nature is valued in that context, or to how exciting the activity is. It is not solely about the pictures taken and ways that our own pride can be lifted by showing off the tall mountain we climbed or the exotic animals we saw. While I enjoy these things as much as anyone, they do not alone account for the extraordinary connection and leveling effect of nature on all people.

Why and How to Journal Your Hikes

by Erin Gautier April 18, 2019

The most compelling reason to trail journal is the wholeness it creates. While you might tend to hike for fitness or to clear your mind, taking a few moments to set intention and focus helps connect your physical experience and mental/emotional state with your surroundings. Suddenly, you notice details that you would have passed by before. You find yourself tuned in to the natural world around you, and can move forward with a clear mind.
