    What a beautiful quote, and a beautiful essay! Thank you for that link.
    The quotation (“The perception of beauty….”), though, is cited in Dr. Stan Rowe’s essay as originating from Kathleen Raine (the poet, presumably).

    I’ve returned to this page again a couple of years later, and explored the website containing the essay linked above, “Beauty and the Botanist”.
    The website, “Ecospheric Ethics” http://www.ecospherics.net/index.html is an excellent resource for anyone interested in environmental issues. It’s both science-based and inspirational.
