No Accidents in Nature

“There are no accidents in Nature,” he said. “Every motion of the constantly shifting bodies in the world is timed to the occasion for some definite, foreordered end.  The flowers blossom in obedience to the same law that marks the course of constellations, and the song of a bird is the echo of a universal symphony. Nature is one, and to me the greatest delight of observation and study is to discover new unities in this all-embracing and eternal harmony.

“Three Days with John Muir,” The World’s Work (1909), V. 17 pp 11355-56, Doubleday
