I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest - I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.–Psalms 55:6
Only the desert has a fascination—to ride alone—in the sun in the forever unpossessed country—away from man. That is a great temptation.–D.H. Lawrence
Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest awhile.–Mark 6:31
To say nothing is out here is incorrect; to say the desert is stingy with everything except space and light, stone and earth is closer to the truth.–William Least Heat Moon
What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote.–Edward Abbey
The other desert – the real desert – is not for the eyes of the superficial observer or the fearful soul of the cynic. It is a land which reveals its true character only to those who come with courage, tolerance, and understanding. For those the desert holds rare gifts.–Randall Henderson
A desert is a place without expectation.–Nadine Gordimer
Transparent and intangible as sunlight, yet always and everywhere present, lures a man on and on, from the red-walled canyons to the smoke-blue ranges beyond, in a futile but fascinating quest for the great, unimaginable treasure which the desert seems to promise. Once caught by this golden lure you become a prospector for life.–Edward Abbey
