Quote of the Day (Henry David Thoreau, on ‘The Revolution of the Seasons’)

“The revolution of the seasons is a great and steady flow, a graceful, peaceful motion, like the swell on lakes and seas. Nowhere does any rigidity grow upon nature, no muscles harden, no bones protrude, but she is supple-pointed now and always….No man was ever yet too nice to walk in her woods and fields.”—Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), October 6, 1840 entry in Autumn: From the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau (1900)
