Thoreau for your Sunday…

Thus it seemed that this one hillside illustrated the principle of all the operations of Nature.The Maker of this earth but patented a leaf.What Champollion will decipher this hieroglyphic for us, that we may turn over a new leaf at last?This phenomenon is more exhilarating to me than the luxuriance and fertility of vineyards.True,it is somewhat excrementitious in its character, and there is no end to the heaps of liver,lights, and bowels, as if the globe were turned wrong side outward; but suggests at least that Nature has some bowels and there again is mother of humanity.This is the frost coming out of the ground; this is Spring.  Spring-Walden,1854.
