On Our Connection to Nature -- D.H. (David Herbert) Lawrence



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/295537.html


Oh, what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth. Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was a personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox!
    -- D.H. (David Herbert) Lawrence (1885–1930), British author. Published by Mandrake Press (1930). A Propos of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” Bantam Books (1980).
