Happy Earth Day

Wise words from John Muir (21 April 1838 – 24 December 1914)
Naturalist, writer, adventurer, advocate and founder of the Sierra Club.

Happy Birthday

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world"

Writing is like the life of a glacier; one eternal grind."

"Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world."

"As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can"."

Everybody needs beauty...

"Going to the mountains is going home."

"Anyhow we never know where we must go, nor what guides we are to get---people,storms, guardian angels, or sheep...."
