And first, being a true nemophilist, I protest against botany.
You can spend days and not exhaust the study which one little triangular bit of overgrown pasture affords, -- spend them, not as a naturalist in close, patient study, because to such a one a square yard of moss is as exhaustless as the forests of Guiana to a Waterton, but as a nemophilist, taking simple delight in mere observation and individual discovery.
