Henry David Thoreau wrote in CAPE COD, “I plod along, thinking what a miserable world this is and what miserable fellows are we that inhabit it, wondering what it is that tempts men to live in it. But suddenly I leave the towns behind and am lost in some boundless heath, and life becomes gradually more tolerable, if not even glorious.”
