Of the land

Me - I know you won't like moving away from here, but it's kind of exciting that a house will be build that will be ours and ours alone.
Ella - Yeah...
Me - And you know, in May, when I buy the land, we will have patch of Australia, a bit of land that will be totally ours.
Ella - And nature's. The land is nature's too.
Me - You sound almost Aboriginal. The Aboriginals say "The land does not belong to us, we belong to the land" and that's kind of true, isn't it.
Ella - The land can't belong to us, it belongs to nature.
