BURROUGHS, John Quotes
(1837-1921), American naturalist
Those lives are, indeed, narrow and confined which are not blessed with several children.
One of the hardest lessons we have to learn in this life, and one that many persons never learn, is to see the divine, the celestial, the pure in the common, the near at hand,—to see that heaven lies about us here in this world.
New time always! Old time we cannot keep. Time does not become sacred to us until we have lived it, until it has passed over us and taken with it a part of ourselves.
