The stars don't look bigger, but they do look brighter.
These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character. First of all there was the complete and utter loneliness and isolation, a feeling wholly unlike the isolation felt when removed from fellow men by mere distance ... . It was a loneliness more akin to a first venture upon the moon or Venus than that from a plane in mid-ocean or a stance on Mount Everest: no whit more wonderful than these feats, but different.william beebe
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.Albert Einstein
Sunshine is a welcome thing. It brings a lot of brightness.Jimmie Davis
I have precious little sympathy for the selfish propriety of civilized man, and if a war of races should occur between the wild beasts and Lord Man, I would be tempted to sympathise with the bears.john muir
...the place [Dogtown, in Gloucester, Massachusetts] is forsaken and majestically lovely as if nature had at last formed one spot where she can live for herself alone....[It] looked like a cross between Easter Island and Stonehenge – essentially druidic in it appearance – it gives the feeling that an ancient race might turn up at any moment and renew an ageless rite there.marsden hartley
And tulips, children love to stretch Their fingers down, to feel in each Its beauty's secret nearer.Elizabeth Browning
Rocks rich in gems, and Mountains big with mines, That on the high Equator, ridgy, rise, Whence many a bursting Stream auriferous plays.james thomson
All are but parts of one stupendous whole, whose body, nature is, and God the soul.Alexander Pope
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.isaac newton
Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.
Perhaps I am just a hopeless rationalist, but isn't fascination as comforting as solace? Isn't nature immeasurably more interesting for its complexities and its lack of conformity to our hopes? Isn't curiosity as wondrously and fundamentally human as compassion?
Nothing in Nature is unbeautiful.
And recognizes ever and anon The breeze of Nature stirring in his soul.william wordsworth
Nothing is too wonderful to be true, if it be consistent with the laws of nature.Bill Nye
All the wild world is beautiful, and it matters but little where we go, to highlands or lowlands, woods or plains, on the sea or land or down among the crystals of waves or high in a balloon in the sky; through all the climates, hot or cold, storms and calms, everywhere and always we are in God's eternal beauty and love. So universally true is this, the spot where we chance to be always seems the best.john muir
The course of Nature seems a course of Death , And nothingness the whole substantial thing.philip james bailey
No one finds fault with defects which are the result of nature.
Nature with folded hands seemed there, Kneeling at her evening prayer!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Vast chain of being! which from God began, Natures ethereal, human, angel, man, Beast, bird, fish, insect, what no eye can see, No glass can reach, from infinite to Thee, From Thee to nothing.
