Nature and Green Leaves

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Journal VA.169 (1862):
How shallow seemed to me yesterday in the woods the speech one often hears from tired citizens who have spent their brief enthusiasm for the country, that Nature is tedious, and they have had enough of green leaves. Nature and the green leaves are a million fathoms deep, and it is these eyes that are superficial.
Isaak Levitan, Footpath in a Forest, Ferns
