A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring that I get pleasure from with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence during this spot, that was created for the elation of souls like mine. i’m thus happy, my expensive friend, thus absorbed within the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my abilities. I ought to be incapable of drawing one stroke at this moment; and however I feel that I ne’er was a larger creator than currently.
When, whereas the beautiful vale teems with vapour around American state, and also the meridian sun strikes the side of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and however a number of stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie on the brink of the planet, thousand unknown plants square measure detected.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
