bowels
...Thoreau's Journal: 12-Dec-1859

I am inclined to think of late that as much depends on the state of the bowels as of the stars. As are your bowels, so are the stars.

Some more stellar quotes from Henry:

"As the skies appear to a man, so is his mind. Some see only clouds there; some, prodigies and portents; some rarely look up at all; their heads, like the brutes', are directed toward Earth. Some behold there serenity, purity, beauty ineffable. The world runs to see the panorama, when there is a panorama in the sky which few go to see."

-- Journal, 17 January 1852 Entry


"The stars are the jewels of the night and perchance surpass anything which day has to show."

-- Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
