When we touch the Earth we become small, with the humility and simplicity of a young child.  When we touch the Earth we become great, like an ancient tree sending her roots deep into the earth, drinking from the source of all waters.  When we touch the Earth, we breathe in all the strength and stability of the Earth, and breathe out our suffering.

– Thich Nhat Hanh (The World We Have, p. 125)
