Donald Culross Peattie, Flowering Earth (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1939; rpt. Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1991), p. 144:
For every man there is some spot on earth, I think, which he has pledged himself to return to, some day, because he was so happy there once. Even to long for it is holiday of a sort. These visits of revery may be all that he can pay it, for years, perhaps until his shade is free to haunt where it pleases. But some are lucky; some get back, and find it, to every trembling leaf and stanch old tree trunk, untouched by any alteration but the seasons’.
