Gardens on Stone

“To study lichens is to get a taste of earth and health, to go gnawing rails and rocks. The lichenist extracts nutriment from the very crust of the earth. A taste for this study is an evidence of titanic health, a sane earthiness. It fits a man to deal with the barrenest and rockiest experience.”

– Henry David Thoreau
