Sweet, sane, still Nakedness in Nature!  – ah if poor, sick, prurient humanity in cities might really know you once more!  Is not nakedness then indecent?  No, not inherently.  It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectability that is indecent.  There come moods when these clothes of ours are not only too irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent.  Perhaps indeed he or she to whom the free exhilarating ecstasy of nakedness in Nature has never been eligible (and how many thousands there are!) has not really known what purity is – nor what faith or art or health really is.  ~Walt Whitman
