"He who walks, in average sees more of people and cosmos than he who rides. Sitting in a coach, one has separated himself several degrees from humanity. One cannot look into each other's face as firmly and clearIy and necessarily one does too little or too much. If everybody rides too much, everything goes bad, just look around. Driving shows impotence, walking shows power. Just because of this I rarely desire to drive; also, I cannot give a a dime to a poor man as easily and friendly when sitting in a coach."
