Monday's Nature Quote

I am in love with this world. I have nestled lovingly in it. I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings.
--John Burroughs

  2. Yup. But you gotta admit that some folks pay closer attention to the details (or maybe it's to the grandiosity?) and enjoy this planet more than other people do!

  3. Is it any wonder that poets have been expounding on the wonders of Nature for centuries.  A quote to celebrate.

  4. Yeah, I love the world, too, but I have to admit, I'm tired of sleeping on dirt and hauling water to purify.
