All Good Things are Wild & Free

"The wildest dreams of wild men, even, are not the less true, though they may not recommend themselves to the sense which is most common. It is not every truth that recommends itself to the common sense. Nature has a place for the wild clematis as well as for the cabbage. Some expressions of truth are reminiscent— others merely sensible, as the phrase is— others prophetic. I confess that I am partial to these wild fancies, which transcend the order of time and development. They are the sublimest recreation of the intellect.

In short, all good things are wild and free."

-Henry David Thoreau
