Commonplace Scenes

Edwin Way Teale, Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year (1953; rpt. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1987), August 17:
Sad are the days when the glory is gone from the earth, when we look about us with tired eyes, dimmed by the sediment of fatigue, and find we can no longer see beauty or wonder or drama in commonplace scenes. The most interesting things in the world to me are the old, familiar, recurring events of the earth.
Worthington Whittredge, Duck Pond
