Monday thought of the week: preparing the soil

A thought:

If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow. The years of childhood are the time to prepare the soil.

– Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder (New York: Harper & Row, 1998 [1956]), p. 56.
