Nature is the art of God. Dante Alighieri
Nature is the art of God. Dante Alighieri. “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves”.
Flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Nature is the art of God.
Choose only one master – Nature. Rembrandt
I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
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.
What I know of the divine sciences and Holy Scriptures, I learned in woods and fields. I have no other masters than the beeches and the oaks.
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we only will tune in.
George Washington Carver
I chatter, chatter, as I flow,
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given. But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life’s become extinct, the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.
George Washington Carver
The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.
Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.
There is nothing pleasanter than spading when the ground is soft and damp.
