"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."
-Rainer Maria Rilke
"Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring."
"There is an opportunity for us to renew ourselves. There’s an opportunity for us to leave the past behind and present something different for the future."
