Unaccustomed earth

"Human nature will not flourish, any more than a potato, if it be planted and replanted, for too long a series of generations, in the same worn-out soil. My children have had other birthplaces, and, so far as their fortunes may be within my control, shall strike their roots into unaccustomed earth."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Custom-House"

Love this quote from a book I'm reading right now ('Unaccustomed Earth' by Jhumpa Lahiri)
