Everything is flowing going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rock... While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood globules in Nature's warm heart.john muir
Joy in looking and comprehending is Nature's most beautiful gift.Albert Einstein
With inexpressible delight you wade out into the grassy sun-lake, feeling yourself contained in one of Nature's most sacred chambers, withdrawn from the sterner influences of the mountains, secure from all intrusion, secure from yourself, free in the universal beauty. And notwithstanding the scene is so impressively spiritual, and you seem dissolved in it, yet everything about you is beating with warm, terrestrial, human love, delightfully substantial and familiar.john muir
“We are able to breathe, drink, and eat in comfort because millions of organisms and hundreds of processes are operating to maintain a liveable environment, but we tend to take Nature's services for granted because we don't pay money for most of them.”
I care to live only to entice people to look at Nature's loveliness.john muir
I have thought some of Nature's journeymen had made men and not made them well, they imitated humanity so abominably.william shakespeare
The moral ambivalence of the great mother goddesses has been conveniently forgotten by those American feminists who have resurrected them. We cannot grasp Nature's bare blade without shedding our own blood.camille paglia
You cannot rob me of free Nature's grace, You cannot shut the windows of the sky Through which Aurora shows her brightening face.james thomson
Perhaps the wind Wails so in winter for the summer's dead, And all sad sounds are Nature's funeral cries For what has been and is not.george eliot
Gie me ae spark o' Nature's fire, That's a'the learning I desire.Robert Burns
The heart which, like a staff, was one For mine to lean and rest upon, The strongest on the longest day With steadfast love, is caught away, And yet my days go on, go on. And cold before my summer's done, And deaf in Nature's general tune, And fallen too low for special fear, And here, with hope no longer here, While the tears drop, my days go on.
From lower to the higher next, Not to the top, is Nature's text; And embryo good, to reach full stature, Absorbs the evil in its nature.james russell lowell
O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell, Let it not be among the jumbled heap Of murky buildings: climb with me the steep, Nature's observatory whence the dell, In flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell, May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep 'Mongst boughs pavilion'd, where the deer's swift leap Startles the wild bee from the foxglove bell.john keats
Happy insect! what can be In happiness compared to thee? Fed with nourishment divine, The dewy morning's gentle wine! Nature waits upon thee still, And thy verdant cup does fill; 'Tis fill'd wherever thou dost tread, Nature's self's thy Ganymede.Abraham Cowley
Attired to please herself: no gems of any kind She wore, nor aught of borrowed gloss in Nature's stead; And, then her long, loose hair flung deftly round her head Fell carelessly behind.
But on and up, where Nature's heart Beats strong amid the hills.
Is it, O man, with such discordant noises, With such accursed instruments as these, Thou drownest Nature's sweet and kindly voices, And jarrest the celestial harmonies?Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Government itself at length must fall To Nature's state, where all have right to all.john dryden
Compared with the elegant inventions of the theorists, Nature's code seemed a bit of a kludge.brian hayes
Though I perchance am vicious in my guess, As, I confess, it is my Nature's plague To spy into abuses, and oft my jealousy Shapes faults that are not.william shakespeare
"Man has reached the point where his impact on the climate can be as significant as Nature's."
