"Each of us deciphers from the ancient alphabets of nature only those secrets that our own deeps possess the power to endow with meaning. It has been so with Darwin and Thoreau. The golden alphabet, in whatever shape it chooses to reveal itself, is never spurious. From its inscrutable lettering is created us and all the streaming cloudland of our dreams."
