Words of note

The voice of forest water in the night, a woman's laughter in the dark, the clean, hard rattle of raked gravel, the cricketing stitch of midday in hot meadows, the delicate web of children's voices in the bright air - these things will never change.

Thomas Wolfe, American novelist

From 'You Can't Go Home Again,' (1940).
