Beauty that owes us nothing...

"Just thinking about trees and their indifferent majesty and our love for them teaches us how ridiculous we are - vile parasites squirming on the surface of the earth - and at the same time how deserving of life we can be, when we can honor this beauty that owes us nothing."

                                                      - Paloma Josse in The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
