Richard Jefferies Quote

Stoop and touch the earth, and receive its influence; touch the flower, and feel its life; face the wind, and have its meaning; let the sunlight fall on the open hand as if you could hold it. Something may be grasped from them all, invisible yet strong. It is the sense of a wider existence - wider and higher.


The Hills and the Vale, The Idle Earth (p. 273), Duckworth & Co. 1909
