I am in love with this world.  I have nestled
lovingly in it.  I have climbed its mountains,
roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed
its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the
oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains,
the fury of its winds, and always have beauty
and joy waited upon my goings and comings.

~ John Burroughs
