A Quote by Henry Beston on beauty, civilization, driving, fear, mystery, and serenity

Our civilization has fallen out of touch with night. With lights, we drive the holiness and beauty of night back to the forests and the sea; the little villages, the crossroads even, will have none of it. Are modern folk, perhaps, afraid of night? Do they fear that vast serenity, the mystery of infinite space, the austerity of stars?

Henry Beston (1888 - 1968)
