"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity . . . and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself."

- William Blake, English poet, painter and printmaker (1757-1827), from his letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799, as published in The Letters of William Blake (1906)
