“Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty.” – Aldo Leopold
“The very facts of the world are a poem. Light is turned to sugar. Salamanders find their way to ancestral ponds following magnetic lines radiating from the earth. The saliva of grazing buffalo causes the grass to grow taller.” – Robin Wall Kimmerer.
“Thinking ourselves into the picture can help us to understand our relationships with the Universe.” – David Astin
