Laura Gilpin

  • Much earnest philosophical thought is born of the life which springs from close association with nature.

  • A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself — for it is from the soil, both from its depth and from its surface, that a river has its beginning.

  • A river finds its course with sureness, pushing aside whatever surface matter lies in its way, and as it gathers volume and resulting strength, nothing can withstand its progress. It carves canyons, moves great boulders, erodes the soil, moving insistently onward in its surging need to reach its final goal — the ocean.

Laura Gilpin, U.S. photographer, writer

(1891 - 1979)
