The Wilderness Plains

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Wilderness III

“I don’t like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It’s just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess.”
– Walt Disney

Wild Lavender

“But you, you foolish girl, you have gone home to a leaky castle across the sea to lie awake in linen smelling of lavender, and hear the nightingale, and long for me.”
— Edna St. Vincent Millay
