In this very great
phrase, "Reverence for Life," I too found what I had
sought for so long. It explained not only my thoughts, but the
emotions and instincts which I had long experienced as a man.
It is one of those phrases which, stimulating thought to an almost
unbearable degree, illuminates the darkness like the switching
on of a powerful light bulb-a phrase which is fecund and keeps
breeding thought upon thought, conception upon conception upon
conception. It was like the bursting of a rocket high in the darkness
of the night air.
"From My Experience ... is full of stimulating
ideas, fascinating for anyone who understands or wishes to understand
something of land and people and animals and plants-their relations
to economics, science and the vast scheme of life itself. But
it ... catches one's attention in a different way and draws one
back to read it , searchingly, again and again. For in it, cleanly
and powerfully concentrated, is the story of a man's search for
the meaning of living."
