"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter. . .to be thrilled by the
stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring -
these are some of the rewards of the simple life."
- John Burroughs
