It is not easy to walk alone in the country without musing upon something.
Anybody can be good in the country.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children.
When I am in the country I wish to vegetate like the country.
I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand.
I have no relish for the country; it is a kind of healthy grave.
It is only in the country that we can get to know a person or a book.
