A Somerset view. Even today I can trace the path with my mind, the secret place where the deer slept.
Nature and Art - H.D.Thoreau
All nature is classic and akin to art-the sumack and pine and hickory which surround my house remind me of the most graceful sculpture. sometimes the trees do not make merely a vague impression-but their tops or a single limb or leaf seems to have grown to a distinct expression and invites my life to a like distinctness and emphasis.
