Quote Left In the fields and woods more than anything else all things come to those who wait, because all things are on the move, and are sure sooner or later to come your way.

When we look upon Nature with fondness and appreciation, she meets us halfway and takes a deeper hold on us than when studiously conned. Hence I say the way of knowledge of Nature is the way of love and enjoyment, and is more surely found in the open air than in the school room or the laboratory. Quote Right
