"The Sky is in all ways suited to entertain." Or something like that. I believe John Ruskin said/wrote something to this effect. Anyone have the exact quote?

I remember the quote itself being several lines, something along the lines of "the sky is awesome yadda yadda yadda I love to watch the clouds yadda yadda yadda really who would ever want for any better entertainment &c."

Only he wrote it classier.

Perhaps this?

"[The sky] is the part of creation in which nature has done more for the sake of pleasing man, more for the sole and evident purpose of talking to him and teaching him, than in any other of her works, and it is just the part in which we least attend to her."

I don't think that's the one I was thinking of, but it'll serve. Cheers!
