    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Fishermen, hunters, woodchoppers, and others, spending their lives in the fields and woods, in a peculiar sense a part of Nature themselves, are often in a more favorable mood for observing her, in the intervals of their pursuits, than philosophers or poets even, who approach her with expectation. She is not afraid to exhibit herself to them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
