The joy of walking

I suspect that the mind, like the feet, works at about three miles an hour. If this is so, then modern life is moving faster than the speed of thought, or thoughtfulness.

– Rebecca Solnit

I found an old article on the Huffington Post today listing some literary quotes on the joys of walking. It reminded me this Rebecca Solnit quote and I wanted to share it with you in case you were having a day like mine where things seem to moving too quickly … and thoughtlessly.
