Leaves of Autumn, Jardin des Tuileries Oct. 2008 / I.A. Daglis
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
John Muir [1838-1914, Scottish-born American naturalist, author, and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States] - see Muir Woods
