Here's a short quote pulled from a longer quote that I used a year ago, but I like it enough to want to use it again. If I had the time, I'd spend the day reading John Muir; he's terrific.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. One fancies a heart like our own must be beating in every crystal and cell, and we feel like stopping to speak to the plants and animals as friendly fellow-mountaineers.
From My First Summer in the Sierra.
