What is all this fuss about “nature”? What is it, even? Nature eats her young, her frail, her elders. Nature is cruel. Are you “nature-centric”? Good for you. I am not; I simply affirm that she exists. I affirm that death exists, and birth, but I am the bringer of culture to Man, I am she who brought you letters and art and warmth from the cold harsh winters that made you starve your young on hillsides. What is so wonderful about “nature” that made you do that?
– Saraswati, on the romanticizing of nature
