Hybrid quote

'The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity...and some scarce see nature at all. Some see a pastoral scene of utopia. Others see a golden opportunity for fracking and mining. Some see a vast taxonomy of species of plants and animals. Others see a dazzling matrix of zeros and ones. Some see something to be stripped and remade. Others see only pristine and perennial glory. Some see a transient vale of tears and others a lustful arena of drives and passions. But to the eyes of the man* of imagination, nature is imagination itself.' William Blake and me.
