An entry in one of Eric Hoffer's notebooks, dated 1960:
Flaubert and Nietzsche have emphasized the importance of standing up and walking in the process of thinking. The peripatetics were perhaps motivated by the same awareness. Yet purposeful walking—what we call marching—is an enemy of thought and is used as a powerful instrument for the suppression of independent thought and the inculcation of unquestioned obedience.
Never march. Avoid obedience. Saunter, random walk, stroll down unexpected paths. Never march.
