No, I love YOU more!
Giant in Sequoia National Park. April 19, 2011.

“There’s so much humanity in a love of trees, so much nostalgia for our first sense of wonder,
so much power in just feeling our own insignificance when we are surrounded by nature...  

yes, that’s it: just thinking about trees and their indifferent majesty and our love for them

teaches us how ridiculous we are—vile parasites squirming on the surface of the earth—

and at the same time how deserving of life we can be, when we can honor

this beauty that owes us nothing.”

— Muriel Barbery The Elegance of the Hedgehog
