John Muir 21 April 1838 – 24 Dec 1914, noted for being anecological thinker, political spokesman, and whose writings became a personal guide into nature for countless individuals, making his name "almost ubiquitous" in the modern environmental consciousness. According to author William Anderson, Muir exemplified "the archetype of our oneness with the earth", while biographer Donald Worster says he believed his mission was "...saving the American soul from total surrender to materialism."

For me, the artist simply means one who can transform ordinary life into a beautiful creation with his craft. But I did not mean creation strictly applied only to the arts, I meant creation in life, the creation of a child, a garden, a home...I was referring to creativity in all its aspects...the faculty for healing, consoling, raising the level of life, transforming it by our own efforts. I was talking about the creative will, our salvation. - Anaïs Nin
