The knowledge that another has felt as we have felt, and seen things, even if they are little things, not much otherwise than we have seen them, will continue to the end to be one of life’s choicest pleasures.

    I really like this quote. Since much of what we experience is kept to ourselves, because that's what life is all about - experiencing EVERY second of the day - it's so easy to get lost in ourselves. It's so easy not to consider how someone else may view or relate to the same tree that you are passing by and then subconsciously click into memory, per se. To step back and actually acknowedge another's experience can be eye-opening,and sometimes helps us to appreciate life with all its ups and downs.

    Sorry for going off on a tangent! :)
