John Muir

Douglas Adams
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Helen Keller
“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content”
Helen Keller

And Eternity in an hour.”
William Blake, Auguries of Innocence
