Day 329; Country Thoughts

Country things are the necessary root of our life; and that remains true even of a rootless and tragically urban civilization. To live permanently away from the country is a form of slow death. ~Esther Meynell

It’s unexplainable, this push-pull of city and country life. ~Angeline Muñoz

Man is rated the highest animal, at least among all animals that returned the questionnaire. ~Robert Brault

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. ~E.B. White

  1. There’s someting magical about being in the countryside. Quiet, simple, beautiful. Somehow, it reminds me of the place I grew up and all the wonderful childhood memories. Thanks.

  2. Love this post. Love the quotes! And I, too, am caught in the push-pull of city and country life. I love both!

      Thanks so much, c. Your farm sounds like a lovely place to live. I truly love being out in the country, which is definitely proven when we return home from being in the city, and my soul almost yells out “ahhhhh……peace”. The city is a wonderful place to visit, but I’m not sure I could live there again, either.
      I subscribe to The Sun Magazine, and this month’s edition has this wonderful collection of quotes. I snapped the photos from the car as we drove down the interstate towards home.
