A Thought on the Necessity of Beauty from John Muir

Jesus told us that we cannot live on bread alone. John Muir may not have been thinking about Jesus’ words when he wrote the following, but he certainly had the wisdom of the Spirit of Creation when he wrote:

Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray, where nature heals and gives strength to body and soul alike.
-John Muir
