Words Of Note

When I realize how invigorating

contact with the earth may

sometimes be, I find myself

wondering how humanity ever

consented to come so far away from

the jungle.

Ellen Glasgow,

early 20th-century American author

Quoted in 'Letters of Ellen Glasgow,'

edited by Blair Rouse (1958).
