The stars don't look bigger, but they do look brighter.
How Strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!
All nature wears one universal grin.
Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites.William Ruckelshaus
When man tries to fight nature, he invariably loses. Nature invariably wins. It is only when man is wise enough to live with nature that he really gets anywhere.
O nature! * * * Enrich me with the knowledge of thy works; Snatch me to Heaven.james thomson
Go forth under the open sky, and list To Nature's teachings.william cullen bryant
Ever charming, ever new, When will the landscape tire the view?john dyer
Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same.ralph waldo emerson
E'en from the tomb the voice of nature cries, E'en in our ashes live their wonted fires.thomas gray
What Nature has writ with her lusty wit Is worded so wisely and kindly That whoever has dipped in her manuscript Must up and follow her blindly. Now the summer prime is her blithest rhyme In the being and the seeming, And they that have heard the overword Know life's a dream worth dreaming.
Let us a little permit Nature to take her own way; she better understands her own affairs than we.Michel de Montaigne
And not from Nature up to Nature's God, But down from Nature's God look Nature through.robert montgomery
Diseased Nature oftentimes breaks forth In strange eruptions.william shakespeare
For all that Nature by her mother-wit Could frame in earth.Edmund Spenser
Nothing in Nature, much less conscious being, Was e'er created solely for itself.Edward Young
Every object in nature is impressed with God's footsteps, and every day repeats the wonders of creation. There is not an object, be it pebble or pearl, weed or rose, the flower-spangled sward beneath, or the star-spangled sky above, not a worm or an angel, a drop of water or a boundless ocean, in which intelligence may not discern, and piety adore, the providence of Him who took our nature that He might save our souls.
When I consider the multitude of associated forces which are diffused through nature when I think of that calm balancing of their energies which enables those most powerful in themselves, most destructive to the world's creatures and economy, to dwell associated together and be made subservient to the wants of creation, I rise from the contemplation more than ever impressed with the wisdom, the beneficence, and grandeur, beyond our language to express, of the Great Disposer of us all.
The very voices of the night, sounding like the moan of the tempest, may turn out to be the disguised yet tender voices of God, calling away from all earthly footsteps, to mount with greater singleness of eye and ardor of aim the alone ladder of safety and peace upward, onward, heavenward, homeward.
God is infinite; and the laws of nature, like nature itself, are finite. These methods of working, therefore, which correspond to the physical element in us, do not exhaust His agency. There is a boundless residue of disengaged energy beyond.
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.e. e. cummings
