Monday thought of the week: let children walk with Nature

A thought:

But let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.

– John Muir (April 21, 1838 – December 24, 1914), A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf, edited by William Frederic Bade (New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1916), p. 70
