A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on dream and nature

Each new year is a surprise to us.  We find that we had virtually forgotten the note of each bird, and when we hear it again, it is remembered like a dream, reminding us of a previous state of existence.  How happens it that the associations it awakens are always pleasing, never saddening, reminiscences of our sanest hours.  The voice of nature is always encouraging.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
