Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Understanding the laws of nature does not mean that we are immune to their operations.
The poetry of the earth is never dead.
The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
