Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

"I remember a hundred lovely lakes, 

and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. 

The trail has strung upon it, 

as upon a thread of silk, 

opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. 

It has given me blessed release from care 

and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. 

It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. 

Whenever the pressure of our complex city life 

thins my blood 

and benumbs my brain, 

I seek relief in the trail; 

and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, 

my cares fall from me — 

I am happy." 

~ Hamlin Garland (1899)
