    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    It is hard to believe that England is so near as from your letters it appears; and that this identical piece of paper has lately come all the way from there hither, begrimed with the English dust which made you hesitate to use it; from England, which is only historical fairyland to me, to America, which I have put my spade into, and about which there is no doubt.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The question of place and climate is most closely related to the question of nutrition. Nobody is free to live everywhere; and whoever has to solve great problems that challenge all his strength actually has a very restricted choice in this matter. The influence of climate on our metabolism, its retardation, its acceleration, goes so far that a mistaken choice of place and climate can not only estrange a man from his task but can actually keep it from him: he never gets to see it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    An Illinois woman has invented a portable house which can be carried about in a cart or expressed to the seashore. It has also folding furniture and a complete camping outfit.
    Lydia Hoyt Farmer (1842–1903)

    Sleep, nature’s rest, divine tranquillity,
    That brings peace to the mind and chases far
    All care; that soothes our breasts by daily toil
    Over-wearied, and prepares for labor new.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    A movement is only composed of people moving. To feel its warmth and motion around us is the end as well as the means.
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
