Christopher McCandless: I read somewhere how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong… but to feel strong.
"You know, about getting out of this sick society! Society.. Society, man! You know, society! Cause, you know what I don’t understand?

Christopher McCandless: The sea's only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong. Now I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here.

Facing the blind deaf stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head.
The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences.
You don't need human relationships to be happy, God has placed it all around us.
What if I were smiling and running into your arms? Would you see then what I see now?

Title Card: There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; / There is a rapture on the lonely shore; / There is society, where none intrudes, / By the deep sea, and music in its roar; / I love not man the less, but Nature more… / – Lord Byron
