"The sun is round. I ring with life, and the mountains ring, and when I can hear it, there is a ringing that we share. I understand all this, not in my mind, but in my heart, knowing how meaningless it is to try to capture what cannot be expressed, knowing that mere words will remain when I read it all again, another day."
Writer Peter Matthiessen from his 1978 book, The Snow Leopard
Matthiessen was a award-winning novelist, naturalist, and zen Buddhist. You can hear Terry’s 1989 interview with him here.
