„I sometimes think that one square yard of our acre, looked at closely enough in all seasons and interpreted with all that science and poetry and art could bring to bear, would support a lifetime of discovery.“
„There is delight, always, in being where I am, doing what I’m doing, instead of standing at a bus stop or drinking more coffee in Beweley’s. I lean on my spade to look up at the mountain, or down at the breakers on the strand, and never, ever, feel bored. You’d thing after so many years I’d stop being surprised, being relieved, to find this out. A changed view of time is one of the really momentous recognitions of the other, self-directed life.“
P.S. not trying to be politically or anything, but, damn you, Romanian mosquitos!
