Every walk to the woods is a religious right - John Burroughs ( 3/4/1837 - 29/3/1921)

" Every walk to the woods is a religious right, every bath in the stream  is a saving ordinance. Communion service  is at all hours, and the bread and the wine  are from the heart and  marrow of Mother Earth. There are no heretics in Natures church, all are communicants. The beauty of natural   religion  is that you have it all the time;  you  do not  have  to seek it afar off  in myths and legends; in catacombs, in  garbled texts; in miracles of dead saints  or wine-bibbing friars. It is of today; it  is now and here; it is everywhere."

- John Burroughs :- American naturalist, reprinted from essays in Naturalism 1920
