Contexto: The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.

„Come on, don't wait, come! Or don't you like to roll into the lush grass? I really would like to be completely a cow, to feel in that way the childish fun that such a beast gets when it is running about in the pasture and makes all that kind of silly jumps with its tail high in the air.“

—  Anton Mauve Dutch painter (1838–1888) 1838 - 1888

translation from original Dutch, Fons Heijnsbroek, 2018
(version in original Dutch / origineel citaat van Anton Mauve, uit zijn brief:) Toe kerel, laat je niet wachten, kom hier. Of heb je er geen behoefte aan eens te rollen in het welige gras? Wat zou ik graag eens helemaal koe wezen om zoo recht eens dat kinderlijke plezier te voelen, dat zoo'n beest heeft as het in de wei rondholt en met de staart in den hoogte allerlei malle sprongen doet..

I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet, keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.“
