JOHN BURROUGHS
American author and naturalist
(1837 - 1921)

Culture means the perfect and equal development of man on all sides.
      - [Culture]

For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice.
      - [Price]

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and the wonder of the world.
      - [Thought]

I think rain is as necessary to the mind as to vegetation. My very thoughts become thirsty, and crave the moisture.
      - [Rain]

If we take science as our sole guide, if we accept and hold fast that alone which is verifiable, the old theology must go.
      - [Science]

One can only learn his powers of action by action, and his powers of thought by thinking.
      - [Doing]

To treat your facts with imagination is one thing, but to imagine your facts is another.
      - [Facts]

Travel and society polish one, but a rolling stone gathers no moss, and a little moss is a good thing on a man.
      - [Travel]

That which distinguishes this day from all others is that then both orators and artillerymen shoot blank cartridges.
      - Journal, referring to the Fourth of July
        [Fourth of July]

The tendinous part of the mind, so to speak, is more developed in winter; the fleshy, in summer. I should say winter had given the bone and sinew to literature, summer the tissues and the blood.
      - The Snow-Walkers [Winter]

Serene I told my hands and wait,
  Nor care for wind or tide nor sea;
    I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
      For lo! my own shall come to me.
      - Waiting [Expectation]
