|Who knows what great ideas you might|
discover the next time you're on the trail?
Here's another trail-related quote from the same David Pressman Patent book:
"To discover something you've never seen before, walk the same path you walked yesterday." - R.W. Emerson
Once again, it does not surprise me that some of the world's greatest writers, inventors, and creative geniuses got an immense amount of inspiration and innovation while walking or riding their bikes. Albert Einstein famously stated, "I thought of it while riding my bike."
In my mind, the best reasons for hitting the trail are exercise and relaxation. But hey, if you happen to discover the cure for cancer while wandering along your nearest footpath, that's just icing on the cake.
