“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest in exploring and learning all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable. Land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because they are unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” ~Henry David Thoreau
