Lloyd C. Douglas quote (from Magnificent Obsession)


An excellent place for day-dreaming.
To appreciate it properly however
the guest must bring to the little arbor
a quiet, unworried mind,
else the timeless calm of the place
would only accentuate the internal tumult.
... Unless one were at peace with himself,
here, he could be more desperately lonely
and depressed than in a desert.
