283. Man’s heart grows hard away from nature. ~Standing Bear, Ponca Chief

For myself, I am grateful to nature,
not so much when I see her on the side
that is open to the world,
as when I’m permitted to enter her shrine.
Then one may seek
to know of what stuff the universe is made,
who is its author or guardian,
what is the nature of God…
Life would have been a useless gift,
were I not admitted to the study of such themes.
~Seneca, 4 BC-AD 65

Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.  ~Psalm 37:4   ✝
