„Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.“

— John Muir, chapter 1: The Wild Parks and Forest Reservations of the West <!-- Terry Gifford, EWDB, page 459 -->
