“Movement is the essence of life.”
Bernd Heinrich

“The very idea of "managing" a forest in the first place is oxymoronic, because a forest is an ecosystem that is by definition self-managing.”
Bernd Heinrich, The Trees in My Forest

“There is nothing quite so gentle, deep, and irrational as running--and nothing quite so savage, so wild.”
Bernd Heinrich, Why We Run: A Natural History
