if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature.
Be cold and hungry and weary."

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on nature, serenity, and thoreau

"To him whom contemplates a trait of natural beauty, no harm nor despair can come.  The doctrines of despair, spiritual or political servitude, were never taught by those who shared the serenity of Nature.  For each phase of Nature, though not invisible, is yet not too distinct or obtrusive.  It is there to be found when we look for it, but not too demanding of our attention."

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Raphie on western front, war on terror, monster, thoreau, and quiet desperation

It's all quiet here on the Western Front of the War on Terror... for now, but, speaking just for myself, I'd feel a whole lot happier and a whole lot safer if our soldiers and our National Guardsmen were here at home instead of losing their lives overseas to that hydra-headed monster we ourselves have created through indifference bred by the murmur of that human creek Thoreau called "quiet desperation."
