“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.” John Donne
All these fruits I have come across during yesterday’s walk, some are edible, some are not, but the earth produces generous bounty this time of the year which either bird, or animal, or human will greatly appreciate, for humans if not edible then for the beauty and the gladness it brings to our hearts.
“The first person who, having enclosed a plot of land, took it into his head to say this is mine and found people simple enough to believe him was the true founder of civil society. What crimes, wars, murders, what miseries and horrors would the human race have been spared, had some one pulled up the stakes or filled in the ditch and cried out to his fellow men: “Do not listen to this imposter. You are lost if you forget that the fruits of the earth belong to all and the earth to no one!”
― Jean-Jacques Rousseau
