Simple lessons to learn when you’re lost in the woods and for creators:
1. Finding oneself is the test of man.
2. Merely being out of sight of others in a strange forest gives a man the creeps—a natural feeling but a dangerous one. Never yield to it.
3. Stop, sit down, and try to figure out where you are. Use your head, not your legs.
4. Build a fire in a safe place.
5. Don’t wander about.
6. Don’t yell, don’t worry, and above all, don’t quit.
7. A thinking man is never lost for long. He knows that…he must remain where he is or push on to some definite objective, but not to the point of exhaustion…that someone will be looking for him, and strength in that knowledge makes hardships easier.
