From "The Art of Seeing Things," Leaf and Tendril by John Burroughs
"The eye sees what it has the means of seeing, and its means of seeing are in proportion to the love and desire behind it."
From "The Faith of a Naturalist," Accepting the Universe, 1921 by John Burroughs
"The beauty of natural religion is that you have it all the time. It is of today; it is now and here; it is everywhere. It is not even a faith; it is a love, an enthusiasm, a consecration to natural truth."
