Quotation of the day for December 3, 2004

"This busy working of nature wholly independent of the earth and
seeming to go on in a strain of time not reckoned by our
reckoning of days and years but simpler and as if correcting the
preoccupation of the world by being preoccupied with and
appealing to and dated to the day of judgment was like a new
witness to God and filled me with delightful fear."

- Poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, recalling first seeing the
Northern Lights.
