Ellen Sturgis Hooper
“I slept and dreamed that life was Beauty, — / I woke, and found that life was Duty.”
“... weather is the indisputable ruler of the forest and every living thing in it ...”
“The earth rests, and remembers.”
“... man ... thinks of himself as a creator instead of a user, and this delusion is robbing him, not only of his natural heritage, but perhaps of his future.”
“The natural world is dynamic. From the expanding universe to the hair on a baby's head, nothing is the same from now to the next moment.”
Ellen Sturgis Hooper, U.S. poet
(1812 - 1848)
