A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on enthusiasm, habits, heart, inspiration, love, mind, observation, purity, reading, reason, and simplicity

A love of flowers would beget early rising, industry, habits of close observation, and of reading. It would incline the mind to notice natural phenomena, and to reason upon them. It would occupy the mind with pure thoughts, and inspire a sweet and gentle enthusiasm; maintain simplicity of taste; and . . . unfold in the heart an enlarged, unstraightened, ardent piety.
