"The Lack of Aesthetics"

“The Lack of Aesthetics”

“I miss the woods.  I don’t like what I see in the society I’m about to enter.  I don’t think I’m going to fit in.  It’s too loud.  Too colorful.  The lack of aesthetics,.  The crudeness.  The inanities.  The trivia.”

Christopher Knight, “The North Pond (Maine) Hermit”
