“And as inspiration for that work I had before my eyes, there where I lived and surrounding me wherever I might to, such magnificence of beauty as I had never dreamed could be.”
“Even as the land there is lovelier and better in every way than in other places, so also were the sons of men there most favored with all godly gifts: wisdom, and strength of the body, beauty, and all manner of knowledge.”
“Those Arctic nights: how wonderful they were! The frozen sea, the land, the mountains sides and peaks all white and gleaming in the moonlight or the light of the stars and aurora! The all but unbelievable magnificence of those clear nights, the heavens all ablaze with the darting shafts and waving plumes and veils of northern lights!”
It’s Me O Lord by Rockwell Kent
