I put together this render in Bryce 5 ... I realize there is probably a glut of these kind of images (i.e. the crystal floating somewhere in the corner.) They look so good tho' -- that's probably why there are so many.
Anyway, the thought is by Ralph Waldo Emerson, from his essay entitled Self-Reliance. I find it is rather applicable in today's age.
As usual comments, suggestions and criticisms are welcome.
