“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it … but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill … Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be alright.”

From Kierkegaard’s Letters and Documents, trans. Henrik Roenmeier quoted in Walk Ways (exhibition cat., essay by Stuart Horodner)
