so let’s start acting like it by taking the time simply to BE

and appreciate the beauty of the world.”

“Reading about nature is fine,

but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully,

he can learn more than what is in books,

for they speak with the voice of God.”

“I want to be magic.

I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile.

I want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree.  Or under a hill.

I want to marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing.

I don’t want to pretend at magic anymore.

I want to be magic.”

Charles de Lint

“Nature is ever at work building and pulling down,

creating and destroying,

keeping everything whirling and flowing,

allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion,

chasing everything in endless song

out of one beautiful form into another.”

John Muir

“The purpose of life is to live it,

to taste experience to the utmost,

to reach out eagerly and without fear

for newer and richer experience.”

Eleanor Roosevelt
