In From Nature, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson talks about nature and how it communicates with man. He says exactly how life is, using the sunshine as an example of how if can shine on certain people, and people always can see it. This is a very good example of how man can use nature to do many things in his life. Emerson talks about exactly how these things can be accomplished.

Emerson has very good feelings towards nature and made sure he told it in this story. The statement, "The sun illuminates only they eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child," I believe that this is a very good statement in the fact that it talks about the sunshine illuminating the heart of the child. I believe that this means the sun is trying to be good towards the child, and trying to get them to do what is right.

IN it talking abut that it only shines in the eye of the man I think that this means that not many adults can see the nature in the way that they used to be able to when they were younger. Everyone can see the sun that is why it only illuminates in adults eyes.

When Emerson wrote this I believe that he was in the woods while he wrote it. He talks about how you can write well in nature, and how you can look up and the sky and see all the stars. "The sky is less grand as it shuts down over less worth in the population." This talks about the sky shutting down over the bad people, and no stars will shine. I think that this means that if you are not the worthy population that you will not be looked over. I think that this is a very good statement, and it makes you think a lot about are you worth being looked over.

This is a very well written story and it is very true in life today. You need to have a great outlook on nature and how it can communicate with you. Everyone needs to read this story to get a better perception on how nature can be used in life.
