Leap, and the net will appear - John Burroughs by Toash Leap, and the net will appear - John Burroughs by Toash
Well Im a Minimalist , so !!!!! about John here

John Burroughs (April 3, 1837 March 29, 1921) was an American naturalist and essayist important in the evolution of the U.S. conservation movement. According to biographers at the American Memory project at the Library of Congress,[citation needed] John Burroughs was the most important practitioner after Henry David Thoreau of that especially American literary genre, the nature essay. By the turn of the 20th century he had become a virtual cultural institution[peacock term] in his own right: the Grand Old Man of Nature at a time when the American romance with the idea of nature, and the American conservation movement, had come fully into their own. His extraordinary popularity and popular visibility were sustained by a prolific stream of essay collections, beginning with Wake-Robin in 1871.

In the words of his biographer Edward Renehan,[citation needed] Burroughs' special identity was less that of a scientific naturalist than that of "a literary naturalist with a duty to record his own unique perceptions of the natural world." The result was a body of work whose perfect resonance with the tone of its cultural moment perhaps explains both its enormous popularity at that time, and its relative obscurity since [link] [link]

Yeah, the name of the contest is "Original Quotes". Like quotes of yours. No other quotes from other people of any sort of notoriety can be used.

Maybe you can change it to "Leap and Become Road Pizza Because Their Ain't No Net Rigged Up To Spring Out of Nowhere To Catch Your Silly Ass." I'm pretty sure that is original.

Except *I* said it. So you can't use it. lol

This will probably get disqualified. The quote has to be original, and not from someone else. I do like it though!
