Wisdom from other quarters...

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way... As a man is, so he sees." - William Blake, quoted in Trees, Ansel Adams, p81.

"You are undertaking the first experience, not of the place, but of yourself in that place. It is an experience of our essential lonliness, for nobody can discover the world for anybody else... It is only after we have discovered it for ourselves that it becomes a common ground and a common bond, and we cease to be alone." - Wendell Berry, Trees, Ansel Adams, p91.
