“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
“We have designed our civilization based on science and technology and at the same time arranged things so that almost no one understands anything at all about science and technology. This is a clear prescription for disaster”
“I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.”
― Oscar Wilde
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
― Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg

I love the black and white. I think the palm tree is particularly striking in black and white. The quote “I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.”― Oscar Wilde is the perfect quote for Mr. Squirrel.
