Imaginary Lines daydreaming for beginners

So simply to look on anything, such as a mountain, with the love that penetrates to its essence, is to widen the domain of being in the vastness of non-being. Man has no other reason for his existence.
― Nan Shepherd,
The Living Mountain

These are my humours and my opinions; I offer them as what I believe, not what is to be believed. I aim here only at revealing myself - who will perhaps be different tomorrow if I learn something new which changes me. I have no authority to be believed, nor do I want it, feeling myself too ill-instructed to instruct others.
— Michel de Montaigne,
Of the Institution and Education of Children
