WE MAY LEARN anew what compassion and beauty are, and pause
to listen to the Earth's music. We may see that progress is neither
the accelerating speed with which we multiply and subdue the
Earth nor the growing number of things we possess and cling to.
It is a way along which to search for truth, to find serenity
and love and reverence for life, to be a part of an enduring
harmony trying hard not to sing out of tune.
