Let Children Walk with Nature

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights. All is divine harmony.

- John Muir, A Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf (Houghton Mifflin, 1916), pp. 70-71.
