I do maintain that to take a direct interest in the beauty of nature…is always the mark of a good soul.   -Immanuel Kant


For those to whom a stone reveals itself as sacred, its immediate reality is transmuted into supernatural reality. In other words, for those who have a religious experience all nature is capable of revealing itself as cosmic sacrality.   -Mircea Eliade
