Thoreau for your Tuesday…

Nature doth thus kindly heal every wound.By the mediation of a thousand little mosses and fungi, the most unsightly objects become radiant of beauty.There seem to be two sides of this world, presented us at different times, as we see things in growth or dissolution, in life or death.for seen with the eye of the poet, as God sees them, all things are alive ans beautiful; but seen with the historical eye, or eye of the memory, they are dead and offensive.If we see Nature as pausing, immediately  all mortifies and decays; but seen as progressing, she is beautiful.March 13,1842.
