leap and the net will appear, James Burroughs
I can't seem to get enough of Jason Mraz's music lately.
One of his songs, Make it Mine, has a great line in it: leap and the net will appear. It sort of sums up my background thoughts these days. It's a more refined, "what the hell!"
I thought it was original to Jason, but it turns out to be a famous quote from John Burroughs, a nature essayist who died in 1921.
I decided to look him up. Here are a few other quotes worth pondering.
Thanks John! And Jason.
Here's another good one, but it's a little bit... nasty. In a good way. :)
