Man and the Natural World Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands (20)

We were talking to the rain yesterday, and she said that everybody is always asking her if she's offended by this line. She said, "Who cares. What's so weird about small hands?" Clearly, the delicate fragility of the natural world is what our speaker appreciates here.
