Thought for the Day

Observation is the key to the importance of landscape to the geographer. It links him firmly to reality, it develops his appreciation and poses the questions he must answer to develop understanding. 
Contact with the actual landscape is contact with reality. Confined within classroom walls, geography is an impoverished shadow, like chemistry without experiments or biology without recourse to tangible specimens of plants and animals.
