The universe is one great kindergarten for man.
Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson.
The mountain teaches stability and grandeur;
the ocean immensity and change.
Forests, lakes, and rivers,
clouds and winds, stars and flowers,
stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes –
every form of animate or inanimate existence,
leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
– Orison Swett Marden
