After every happiness comes misery; they may be far apart or near. The more advanced the soul, the more quickly does one follow the other. What we want is neither happiness nor misery. Both make us forget our true nature; both are chains--one iron, one gold; behind both is the Atman, who knows neither happiness nor misery. These are states, and states must ever change; but the nature of the Atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it; only wash away the dross and see it.

Henry David Thoreau

I guess I was thinking of the animals and beautiful flowers that covered our beautiful, untouched land.

And we can draw close to one another in times of need, understand and love one another, and live to comfort each other. And sometimes, when the black depths are silent, we can do even more.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
The sun is gone, but I have a light.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
