The greatest gift
of the garden
is the restoration
of the five senses.
Hanna Rion

Saul Steinberg,
speaking of his childhood

Every language is an old growth forest of the mind, a watershed of thought,
an ecosystem of spiritual possibilities.
Dr. Wade Davies
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare, As You Like It
