"What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other.

"There is magic in the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance, adventure, solitude, and peace. The way of a canoe is the way of the wilderness and of a freedom almost forgotten.

When a man is part of his canoe, he is part of all that canoes have ever known." - Sigurd F. Olson

"When I was 88 years old, I gave up meat entirely and switched to a plant foods diet following a slight stroke. During the following months, I not only lost 50 pounds, but gained strength in my legs and picked up stamina.

I either swim, walk, or paddle a canoe daily and I feel the best I've felt since my heart problems began." - Benjamin Spock

"Perchance, coming generations will not abide the dissolution of the globe, but, availing themselves of future inventions in aerial locomotion, and the navigation of space, the entire race may migrate from the earth, to settle some vacant and more western planet....

Do we not see in the firmament the lights carried along the shore by night, as Columbus did? Let us not despair or mutiny." - Henry David Thoreau
