I want to engrave this on something

I am a big nerd, and if you thumb through my copy of "The Complete Works of Shakespeare" from freshman year of college, you'll find this passage vigorously underlined:

"And this our life, exempt from public haunt
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones and good in every thing.
I would not change it."
--As You Like It, Act II, Scene 1

It reminds me of my childhood in Pennsylvania, and that living in the country has a set of values all its own. Maybe if we post this somewhere, it will be an encouragement on those days when the grocery store feels so far away!
