In the Cause of the Paddle

Credit: Alex Comb

What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more 
rapidly and inescapably than any other.  Travel a thousand miles by 
train,  and you are a brute.  Peddle 500 miles on a bicycle,
 and you remain basically bourgeois.  Paddle a hundred in a canoe,
 and you are already a child of nature.

Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau
