“In 1971, two oil tankers collided in the San Francisco Bay, spilling a half million gallons of crude oil into the waters near the Golden Gate Bridge. John was angry and saddened by the oil spill, but he also felt frustrated. What can one person do? ...
Still disturbed by the oil spill a year later, John was hanging out with his friend Jean one night when he blurted out his idea. ‘We could stop driving cars. Stop riding in them too,’ he said.
Jean agreed, but then reality kicked in. ‘That would be a good thing to do when we have more money.’
‘Yeah,’ said John. ‘It’s probably not realistic.’…
A few weeks later, John was headed to a party at a nightclub in a neighboring town twenty miles away, and he decided to walk instead of drive… As you might expect, it takes a long time to walk twenty miles… By the time he made it to the nightclub, it was one a.m. and the band was winding down with their final encore… the group asked John to explain more about his crazy expedition.
That’s when John said something that surprised even him: ‘It was a taste of freedom.’” - Chris Guillebeau, The Happiness Of Pursuit
"It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions." - Viktor Frankl
