Nature-awakened.

Homer, Adirondacks Guide, 1892


The intellect of most men is barren. They neither fertilize or are fertilized. It is the marriage of the soul with nature that makes the intellect fruitful, that gives birth to imagination…without nature-awakened imagination most persons do not really live in the world, they merely pass through it as they live dull lives of quiet desperation.

- Henry David Thoreau
