Henry offers more rich thoughts to stir into the compost of our life here on the Home Planet.
“I love Nature partly because she is not human, but a retreat from humanity. None of humanity’s institutions control or pervade her. There, a different kind of right prevails. In her midst I can be glad with an entire gladness. If this world were all humankind, I could not stretch myself, I should lose all hope. Humanity is constraint, she is freedom to me. Humanity makes me wish for another world. She makes me content with this.”
~Henry David Thoreau, Journals, January, 1853
