       There is religion in everything around us, A calm and holy religion In the unbreathing things in Nature. It is a meek and blessed influence, Stealing in as it were unaware upon the heart; It comes quickly, and without excitement; It has no terror, no gloom; It does not rouse up the passions; It is untrampled by creeds... It is written on the arched sky; It looks out from every star; It is on the sailing cloud and in the invisible wind; It is among the hills and valleys of the Earth Where the shrubless mountain-top pierces the thin atmosphere of eternal winter. Or where the mighty forest fluctuates before the strong wind, With its dark waves of green foliage; It is spread out like a legible language upon the broad face of an unsleeping ocean; It is the Poetry of Nature; It is that which uplifts the Spirit within us... And
       which opens to our imagination a world of spiritual beauty and holiness.

        ~ John Ruskin ~
