Why haverepparttar bulk ofrepparttar 138846 great men retreated to natural environment and even harsh circumstance, with onlyrepparttar 138847 basics of survival to sustain them, while they cultivated excellence? The answer to this question brings us torepparttar 138848 integration ofrepparttar 138849 First Principle withrepparttar 138850 Second: "Nature showsrepparttar 138851 Way."
