"[Here is] one of the plant saints that all must love and be made so much the purer by it every time it is seen. It puts the roughest mountaineer on his good behavior. With this plant the whole world would seem rich though none other existed. It is not easy to keep on [moving] with the camp cloud [of sheep] while such plant people are standing preaching by the wayside."
