Сторінка 38 - As long as I live I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.

Сторінка 134 - I now love to distraction gardens in the English style, the curving lines, the gentle slopes, the ponds in the forms of lakes . . . and I scorn straight lines and twin allees. I hate fountains which torture water in order to make it follow a course contrary to nature . . . anglomania rules my plantomania.
