Walt Whitman

Never before did I get so close to Nature; never before did she come so close to me…Nature was naked, and I was also…Sweet, sane still Nakedness in Nature! – ah if poor, sick, prurient humanity in cities might really know you once more! Is not nakedness indecent? No, not inherently. It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectability, that is indecent. There come moods when these clothes of our are not only to irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent.

— Walt Whitman (via thoughtsonnaturism)
