GALAPAGOS PILGRIMAGE PART THREE: The Book of Nature

“These people have learned not from books, but in the fields, in the wood, on the river bank. Their teachers have been the birds themselves, when they sang to them, the sun when it left a glow of crimson behind it at setting, the very trees, and wild herbs.”
—Anton Chekhov, “A Day in the Country”
“We are tossed about by external causes in many ways, and like waves driven by contrary winds, we waver and are unconscious of the issue and our fate.' We think we are most ourselves when we are most passionate, whereas it is then we are most passive, caught in some ancestral torrent of impulse or feeling, and swept on to a precipitate reaction which meets only part of the situation because without thought only part of a situation can be perceived.”
― Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy


“Thanks, Scott, for your comments. I am grateful.
Very simply, we can encounter God without even reading the Bible. Aquinas says if you want to know something about God, then begin with creation.
