“It has come to this”

“It has come to this,—that the lover of art is one, and the lover of nature another, though true art is but the expression of our love of nature. It is monstrous when one cares but little about trees but much about Corinthian columns, and yet this is exceedingly common.”

—From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), October 9, 1857.
