The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.

- Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), from A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (Thomas Y. Crowell & Co. Publishers, New York, 1900), p. 249.
