Quote by John Muir: “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we ...”
Until Dawn but I pick every bad option
John Muir Misquoted:
A century before Feynman and Margulis, the great Scottish-American naturalist and pioneering environmental philosopher John Muir April 21, —December 24, channeled this elemental fact of existence with uncommon poetic might in John Muir: Nature Writings public library — a timeless treasure I revisited in composing The Universe in Verse. When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. One fancies a heart like our own must be beating in every crystal and cell, and we feel like stopping to speak to the plants and animals as friendly fellow mountaineers. Nature as a poet, an enthusiastic workingman, becomes more and more visible the farther and higher we go; for the mountains are fountains — beginning places, however related to sources beyond mortal ken. Later that summer, as he makes his way to Tuolumne Meadow in eastern Yosemite, Muir is reanimated with this awareness of the exquisite, poetic interconnectedness of nature, which transcends individual mortality. One is constantly reminded of the infinite lavishness and fertility of Nature — inexhaustible abundance amid what seems enormous waste.
This quote basically states that nothing in this universe is by itself, and everything has some connections. In a more simple term it means that as a human you are never alone you have family and friends somewhere in the world. As for an inanimate object, it has some connection within the world or at least a reason to exist or be there. This may even apply for animals since they have something similar to humans within their body or way they act. This quote means that people will try to find someone that is different than the average human being, but they will always find that there is a certain characteristic that is similar to every human being.
