Excerpt from Home Grounds

It is in this search that his temper, his taste, and his aspirations show themselves, and by nothing more than by what he has done or left undone in improving and beautifying his immediate surroundings. Who can not fairly judge of the sanitary, intellectual, and moral status of a community or of a private dwelling by its outward conditions? The straggling squalor of the outskirts of cities is much more than sensually shocking in its analogy to the souls who are content with such surroundings. In short, where no prospect pleases, it is hardly to be wondered at if man is vile. It is futile to preach against alcohol to a man who finds in it a relief from the hideousness of his daily life. Our parks have already afforded a respite from the exigencies that largely support the rum-shops; but, until landscape gardening in its broadest sense is recognized as a constant necessity, we shall hardly do more than better the physical condition of a few people here and there in our large towns. In proof of this assertion - the constant efforts of philanthropists in sending poor children away from the cities with satisfactory results - without sentimentality, it is not too much to say that in a tour of our tenement-house districts, we shall find the happiest and most respectable families to be those who have a well-cared for box of plants in their window. In short, he who has no love of nature lacks at least one quality of a man.
