Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song.
-- Konrad von Gesner
Postscript after posting: Although the painter and name of painting show at the top of screen by clicking on the picture, I'm adding this information here so as to not cause confusion. I so much love the Hudson River School of painting and I chose this work by Thomas Moran for this post. The title of the painting is Under Trees (The Autumnal Woods).
