"An Insect View of Its Plain"
Insects, Nature and God in Thoreau, Dickinson and Muir
Westward is heaven, or rather heavenward west. The way to heaven is from east to west round the earth. The sun leads and shows it. The stars, too, light it.
Nature and man; some prefer the one, others the other; but that is all de gustibus. It makes no odds at what well you drink, provided it be a well-head.
I feel that the man who, in his conversation with me I feel that the man who, in his conversation with me about the life of man in New England, lays much stress on railroads, telegraphs, and such enterprises does not go below the surface of things. He treats the shallow and transitory as if it were profound and enduring.
In one of the mind's avatars, in the interval between sleeping and waking, aye, even in one of the interstices of a Hindoo dynasty, perchance, such things as the Nineteenth Century, with all its improvements, may come and go again. Nothing makes a deep and lasting impression but what is weighty.
Obey the law which reveals, and not the law revealed.
