There is new life in the soil for every man.
There is healing in the trees for tired minds and for our overburdened spirits,
there is strength in the hills, if only we will lift up our eyes.
Remember that nature is your great restorer.
All those who love Nature she loves in return,
and will richly reward, not perhaps with the good things, as they are commonly called,
but with the best things of this world-
not with money and titles, horses and carriages,
but with bright and happy thoughts, contentment and peace of mind.
Nature goes her own way, and all that to us seems an exception
is really according to order.
When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop,
striped and dotted with continents and islands,
flying through space with other stars
all singing and shining together as one,
the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
