Here’s this week’s to-do item from John Burroughs, American naturalist and essayist, 1837-1921:
“Temperament lies behind mood; behind will lies the fate of character. Then behind both, the influence of family, the tyranny of culture; and finally, the power of climate and environment; and we are free only to the extent we rise above these.”
Is that all we have to do? John, you do set the bar high.
