“Spirituality and the natural environment are two resources often overlooked in Singapore. In linking them, the path-breaking poems in From Walden to Woodlands provide new spaces of openness and questioning, offering possibilities for renewal, contemplation and then action in the social world.” – Prof Philip Holden, Department of English Language & Literature, National University of Singapore

“When Muzakkir and Wai Kit first introduced me to this initiative, I wondered how these two young gentlemen could cultivate such interest in going back to nature and simplicity in this current consumerist world. The message of this anthology moves me and I applaud this important effort. It is very heartening to see passionate young people come together to express their views on nature and diversity through poetry. Such efforts bring hope towards the preservation of our natural environment as well as the strengthening of our unity in diversity.” – Ustaz Muhammad Fazalee bin Ja’afar,  Head of Harmony Centre, Singapore
