Historical Literature Philosophy quote

Quote: J. Brooks Atkinson

“Walking companions, like heroes, are difficult to pluck out

of the crowd of acquaintances. Good dispositions, ready wit,

friendly conversation serve well enough by the fireside but

they prove insufficient in the field. For there you need

transcendentalists — nothing less; you need poets, sages,

humorists and natural philosophers.”

— J. Brooks Atkinson, “A Note on Walking”.
