Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks ... . While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood globules in Nature's warm heart.john muir

Come to my woman's breasts, And take my milk for gall, you murdering ministers, Wherever in your sightless substances You wait on Nature's mischief!
