A man has only one way of being immortal on earth: he has to forget he is a mortal

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is a special place in our yard where heaven has met the earth. This heaven is a swirl of azure, cerulean, sapphire and cobalt. In it, the whispering wind sings a delicately soft turlee. This heaven flashes an eternal sunset of crimson set on ivory. It sees with sharp eyes of midnight ink.

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter."

Rachel Carson

"But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had eyes to see." "I come more and more to the conclusion that wilderness, in America or anywhere else, is the only thing left that is worth saving." "The idea of wilderness needs no defense. It only needs more defenders." "Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit."
