Quote

RACHEL CARSON, (THE) SENSE OF WONDER — There is... beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides... . There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after... winter.

Full quote

There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.
