"There is something odd about walking. It is the first thing an infant wants to do and the last thing an old man wants to never give up doing. But in between we travel on wheels (above and below ground), on saddles, on ships, on planes, on buses, or on trains. Yet doing it the easiest way, by shanks' mare, on foot, almost never occurs to us...even when we go to mail a letter. It takes a power failure or a transit strike to give us back our legs." -Aaron Sussman and Ruth Goode, Magic of Walking
