The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is, “Look under foot.” You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.



—John Burroughs
  American naturalist (1837-1921)

magazine, 1908
