D. H. Lawrence

Ah listen, for Silence is not lonely:
Imitate the magnificent trees
That speak no word of their rapture, but only
Breathe largely the luminous breeze. 

—D. H. Lawrence
Corot, Love Poems and Others
The earth is not a dead body, but is inhabited by a spirit that is its life and soul.

All created things, minerals included, draw their strength from the earth spirit.

This spirit is life, it is nourished by the stars, and it gives nourishment to all the living things it shelters in its womb.

Basilius Valentinus
15th Century Benedictine
monk and alchemist
