We must remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies as the child is who is not yet so much taller than they are. We adults, on the other hand, have outgrown them and have to lower ourselves to stoop down to them. It seems to me that the grass hates us when we confess our love for it. Whoever would partake of all good things must understand how to be small at times. Friedrich Nietzsche

    I think I’ve been mistaken about Nietzsche. I’ve thought he was a very pessimistic writer …but I ike this quote. And John’s picture, of course.

  2. William Wordsworth’s “Ode to Intimations of Immortality” came to mind if for no other reason than the well-known line “splendor in the grass” – – – – I just read it again for the first time in years.
