What are some of your favorite paddling quotes?

Here are some of my favorites!

"The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare to let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure." - Richard Bach

"Paddle solo, sleep tandem." - Author unknown

"I have need of the sky, I have business with the grass; I will up and get me away where the hawk is wheeling lone and high, And the slow clouds go by. I will get me away to the waters that glass the clouds as they pass. I will get me away to the woods." - Richard Hovey

"To have some parts flowing free again...with deer grazing on its banks...ducks and geese raising their young in the backwaters...eddies and twists and turns for canoeists...and fishing opportunities such as Lewis and Clark enjoyed...would be the finest possible tribute to the men of the Expedition, and a priceless gift for our children." - Stephen Ambrose

"The majestic river floated on, Out of the mist and hum of that low land, Into the frosty starlight." - Matthew Arnold

"There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats." - Kenneth Grahame
