A Quote by Vita Sackville-West on country, determination, experience, lies, life, observation, and pleasure

I suppose the pleasure of the country life lies really in the eternally renewed evidences of the determination to live. That is a truism when said, but anything but a truism when daily observed. Nothing shows up the difference between the thing said or read, so much as the daily experience of it.

Vita Sackville-West (1892 - 1962)
