“It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and, in contemplation of her beauties, to know the sense of wonder and humility… [contemplating these beauties we] find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn come as after night, and spring after winter.” Rachel Carson
