Sister Evelyn sent in some quotes from the book “God’s Creation.” As I’m cycling across Oregon, two of them seem especially appropriate:
“To see the world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower;
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.” – William Blake
“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.”
– Walt Whitman
