“It seems to me that the good lord in his infinate wisdom gave us three things to make life bearable- hope, jokes, and dogs. But the greatest of these was dogs.”
Robyn Davidson, Tracks: A Woman's Solo Trek Across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback

“The two important things that I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavour is taking the first step, making the first decision.”
Robyn Davidson, Tracks

“And there are new kinds of nomads, not people who are at home everywhere, but who are at home nowhere. I was one of them ”
Robyn Davidson, Desert Places
