On Thoreau by Emerson

“He honored certain plants with special regard… a bass tree which he visited every year when it bloomed. He thought the scent a more oracular inquisition than sight, _ more oracular and trustworthy. The scent, of course, reveals what are concealed from other senses. By it he detected earthiness. “
