Rhythm of Thoughts

"The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. The rhythm creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it.  A new thought often seems like a feature of the landscape that was there all along, as though thinking were traveling rather than making."
- Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
"Thoughts come clearly while one walks."
- Thomas Mann

"If you want to know if your brain is flabby, feel your legs."
-   Bruce Barton  

"All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking."
-   Friedrich Nietzsche
