Thoughts from Thoreau…

I think that we are not commonly aware that man is our contemporary -that in this strange, outlandish world, so barren, so prosaic,fit not to live in but merely to pass through, that even here so divine a creature as man does actually live.Man, the crowning fact, the god we know.While the earth supports so rare an inhabitant, there is somewhat to cheer us.Who shall say that there is no God, if there is just man?From “The Journal”
