Holy places are dark places. It is life and strength, not knowledge and words, that we get in them. Holy wisdom is not clear and thin like water, but thick and dark like blood. Lewis, Till We Have Faces (via hislivingpoetry)
When I think of places that are associated with Transcendentalism, I think of places like the woods. Just areas with no cities around that are full of places to explore. The forest is just a great place to lose yourself in nature.
