Someone said, and rightfully, that "property is theft'." there's no way a man can stand and tell me that he owns an apple tree. i just don't believe you. and so this pursuit of position and money and power, they are all wrapped up into one package that i think is crippling, debilitating and limiting. and unfortunately, people get s****d into it and then they've got you on the treadmill. you know: ''you've got to have a good job'' and "you've got to have a good education'' - which is another word for indoctrination. we're never going to rise above these limitations we've placed on ourselves.

We never look deeply into the quality of a tree; we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark, and hear the sound that is part of the tree. not the sound of wind through the leaves, not the breeze of a morning that flutters the leaves, but its own sound, the sound of the trunk and the silent sound of the roots.

the mushroom is the elf of plants -
at evening, it is not
at morning, in a truffled hut
it stop opon a spot
.
as if it tarried always
and yet it’s whole career
is shorter than a snake’s delay -
and fleeter than a tare -
.
’tis vegetation’s juggler -
the germ of alibi -
doth like a bubble antedate
and like a bubble, hie -
.
i feel as if the grass was pleased
to have it intermit -
this surreptitious scion
of summer’s circumspect.
.
had nature any supple face
or could she one contemn -
had nature an apostate -
that mushroom - it is him!

On the beach at night alone,
as the old mother sways her to and fro, singing her husky song,
as i watch the bright stars shining—i think a thought of the clef of the universes, and of
the future.
a vast similitude interlocks all,
all spheres, grown, ungrown, small, large, suns, moons, planets, comets, asteroids,
all the substances of the same, and all that is spiritual upon the same,
all distances of place, however wide,
all distances of time—all inanimate forms,
all souls—all living bodies, though they be ever so different, or in different worlds,
all gaseous, watery, vegetable, mineral processes—the fishes, the brutes,
all men and women—me also;
all nations, colors, barbarisms, civilizations, languages;
all identities that have existed, or may exist, on this globe, or any globe;
all lives and deaths—all of the past, present, future;
this vast similitude spans them, and always has spann’d, and shall forever span them, and
compactly hold them, and enclose them.
