Philosophy Statement

In a world where everything is in a constant state of change, one will find happiness through hard work, following morals and beliefs and allowing nature to aid in developing a relationship with God, family, and friends. Living a lifestyle as such is a dilemma for most and therefore I ask, "What defines us?"

The Path to Nature
He who has done his days work
Shalt lie down with patriarchs of the infant world--with kings
Go forth under the open sky


Comes a still voice
A man diligent in his calling
He shall stand before kings--
He shall not stand before mean men.
Nature never wears a mean appearance

Undoubtedly we have no questions to ask which are unanswerable
All science has one aim, namely,
To find a theory of nature
The universe is composed of nature

You bewilder him!
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try-
I hear and behold God in every object, yet understand God in the very least.


Most persons do not see the sun--
Earth and Her waters, and depths of air
We are wont to imagine rare and delectable places in some remote and more celestial corner of the system.
The planets, all the infinite host of heaven.
The universe constantly and obediently answers to our conceptions, the track is laid for us.

A noble doubt perpetually suggests itself,
Great men and nature are indissolubly joined
No man can violate his nature.

He that has never doubted the existence of matter
Will conform
Trust in thyself
We have heard the last of conformity and consistency.

Take to the woods

All other men and my own body, my tongue, every atom of my blood form'd from this soil, this air
Must be ranked under this name


Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life equal simplicity
The youth in life's green spring
Just draw off inspiration--
My inspiration--
My beating heart
By perseverance, study, and eternal desire, any man can become great

I am very proud to have my life
And as to you Death, and you bitter hug of mortality, it is idle to try and alarm me.
The gunman fired off their guns
