Henry David Thoreau Quote

Talk of mysteries! — Think of our life in nature, — daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it, — rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! The solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we? where are we?


The Maine Woods, Ktaadn, Pt. 6 (1848)
