Thoreau's Journal: 25-Jan-1858

You must love the crust of the earth on which you dwell more than the sweet crust of any bread or cake. You must be able to extract nutriment out of a sandheap. You must have so good an appetite as this, else you will live in vain.

I am of a mind with you Mr. Thoreau. In evidence of this I submit my photo posting of today for your approbation. I knelt in wet sand and gave thanks for the day.
