Nature is nurture. When the world becomes too much, I return (if sometimes only in thoughts and spirit) to those secret spots out in the countryside which have always said "Yes" to life. All living beings, and the natural world around us generally, speak to us continuously - whether we are listening or not.
"Naturam sie sequemur ducem, numquam aberrabimus." - "If we follow Nature as our guide, we will never go astray." (Cicero, De officiis 1, 100)
"Das Beste steht nicht immer in den Büchern, sondern in der Natur; nur haben die Menschen meist nicht die Augen, es zu sehen." (Adalbert Stifter)
