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.

you must appreciate the earth upon which we live. if you look around the earth produces such beautiful things to be used at our disposal.

We revel in materialistic pleasures, but the real appreciation should be devoted to nature. We should learn to find the pleasure and beauty in nature wherever we are, from the soil in the earth to mountains covered with snow. Only then can we truly appreciate what life has to offer.
