No thunder marks His awful way:
He walks in silence through the air,
And He is here, and everywhere!

What lights would all around us rise!

Along Life's dullest, dreariest walk!

Carried onward by the throng,
In a solitude I seem
Walking in a peopled dream,
Where around me phantoms fly
In this crowd of passers by.

The fear and pain set close around your way,
Meeting with hopeful eyes each gay to-morrow,
Living with joy each hour of glad to-day.

Mid winding paths on either side where grew
Rare flowers, their perfumes wafted on the breeze,
Which all around us their rich fragrance threw.

That chokes with the blessing it speaks through its tears;

Have plucked a few leaves from the myrtles we found.

Large deviation principle for one-dimensional random walk in dynamic random environment: attractive spin-flips and simple symmetric exclusion
Very recently, Holroyd and Propp proved that several natural quantities of the weighted deterministic walk as defined in Section 2.2 concentrate around the respective expected values of the corresponding weighted random walk.
The Cover Time of Deterministic Random Walks
Roughly speaking, Theorem 3.1 states that the proportion of time spent by the weighted deterministic walk concentrates around the stationary distribution for all configurations C ∈ C and all starting points ex0 .
The Cover Time of Deterministic Random Walks
The proof of Theorem 1.1 relies heavily on the following fact: The expected number of visits to a vertex v before covering B v (r ) (the ball of radius r around v ) grows to infinity with r , even when we allow the walk to behave arbitrarily outside of B v (r ).
Linear Cover Time is Exponentially Unlikely
Therefore there are at most O(r1−ǫ) simple random walks, starting from a box of radius r around the origin.
