Thoreau for your Sunday…

He is richest who has most use for nature as raw material of tropes and symbols with which to describe life. If these gates of golden willows affect me, they correspond to the beauty and promise of some experience on which I am entering. If I am overflowing with life, am rich in experience for which I lack expression, then nature will be my language fill of poetry,-all nature will fable, and every phenomenon be a myth.Journal May 10,1853.
