–St. Bernard de Clairvaux
Many of my favorite quotes celebrate nature. I am especially struck by quotes that are significant and meaningful over great spans of time. Today’s quote means as much today as it did when it originated in the 12th century.
Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 – 1153) was a French abbot who was canonized by Pope Alexander III in 1174. In 1830 Pope Pius VIII bestowed upon Bernard the title “Doctor of the Church”
