“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
“The poetry of the earth is never dead.”
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder why, why, why?
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”
“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn”
“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.”
“Dont be ashamed to weep; tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
