"The best remedy for those who are
afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside,
somewhere where they can be quiet,
alone with the heavens, nature and God.
Because only then does one feel that all is
as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy,
amidst the simple beauty of nature."

"Birth, life, and death -
each took place on the hidden side of a leaf."
"After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn't it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it? This is how I answer when I am asked - as I am surprisingly often - why I bother to get up in the mornings."
"The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

We must make root, send out some little fibre at least, even every winter day."
Henry David Thoreau

"Nature reaches out to us with welcoming arms and
bids us enjoy her beauty; but we dread her silence and
rush into the crowded cities, there to huddle like sheep
fleeing from a ferocious wolf."
"Nature's first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold."
"All art is but imitation of nature."
"There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery
that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and
fills it with noble inclinations."
"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."
"Nature is the living, visible garment of God."
Johnan Wolfgang von Goethe
"Go forth, under the open sky, and listen to Nature's teachings."
William Cullen Bryant
"The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which
the sun and the moon keep their dairy."
"For in the true nature of things,
if we will rightly consider, every green
far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver."
Martin Luther King
"Nothing is more beautiful than
the loveliness of the woods before sunrise."
Geroge Washington Carver
"Nature is painting for us, day by day,
pictures of infinite beauty if only we
have eyes to see them."
"Silently, one by one, in the
infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.
One of the most satisfying experiences in life is a deep appreciation of Nature.

Make friends with nature by working in harmony with her and she will make friends with you.
Emmet Fox, Make Your Life Worth While
Tune your ear to all the wordless music of the stars, and to the voice of nature.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
As never before it is the duty of parents to train their children to behold the creatures of nature, which can never lose their identities because they can only be what they already are: the flowers "fresh and laughing as on the days of great battles," the beasts who "walk the earth, ignorant, while their splendor lasts, of any weakness," and, most of all, perhaps, the stars of the night sky, in all their unchanging majesty and stateliness of movement.
W.H. Auden, Lessons of Nature
