While we are actually subjected to them, the ‘moods’ and ‘spirits’ of nature point no morals. Overwhelming gaiety, insupportable grandeur, sombre desolation are flung at you. Make what you can of them, if you must make at all. The only imperative that nature utters is, ‘Look. Listen. Attend’. C. S. Lewis


In the woods is perpetual youth. Within these plantations of God, a decorum and sanctify reign, a perennial festival is dressed, and the guest sees not how he should tire of them in a thousands years. Ralph Waldo Emerson

The stars awaken a certain reverence because though always present they are inaccessible. Ralph Waldo Emerson
