John Muir Quote

Happy Earth Day! This is a quote from John Muir, the founder of the Sierra Club. His birthday was April 21st, the day before Earth Day. (I got the quote from the Arbor Day Foundation):

“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”

I think what he means is that it is so refreshing being outdoors in the woods, it just feels like another world.

I got this quote from a Celestial Seasonings Tea Box:

“We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.”
