"Nature is the arena of shared enjoyment, an equalizer in the adventure of discovery. Carson urges us to explore nature with feelings and emotions, to use all our senses, and to abandon the impluse to teach or explain. Arouse the emotions, Carson admonsihes, for the foundation of learning is in what we love."
(Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder. Carson also wrote Silent Spring and is known as
"the patron saint of the environmental movement.")
