Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighbouring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.
Softly the Angelus sounded; and over the roofs of the Village columns of pale blue smoke, like clouds of incense ascending, rose from a hundred hearths, the homes of peace and contentment.
– Excerpts from the poems of Longfellow
I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
What a thought-provoking book.
Mankind needs to reconsider his role.
“I find myself caught
Between empathy and reality
My blood mother and mother earth”
This is my life today
Sorry Canadian friends <3
“Sometimes I look around me
at all the young people
and then I remember how messed up society actually is
and how connected I am to all the dysfunction
and I wonder what would happen
if I left University
and found myself a group of people
who are actually actively living in way
that promotes improvement of our society
and it makes me curious…
and a little bit sad
and contributes to my uncertainty
as to whether or not I’ll come back here in the Fall.”
