Quote of the Day (St. Bernard of Clairvaux, on Spiritual ‘Fuller Satisfaction in the Woods’)

“Believe one who has tried: You shall find a fuller satisfaction in the woods than in books. The trees and the rocks will teach you what you cannot hear from the masters.” —St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), quoted in Life and Works of Saint Bernard, Abbot of Clairvaux, Volume 1, edited by Jean Mabillon and Samuel John Eales (1889)

I took this image at the New Jersey Botanical Garden this past fall.
