Nature Quotes (2)

Beautiful quotes about nature, how we can learn from it, and our relationship with the environment around us. Includes quotations from famous poems from Ancient Greek and English poets.

Nature does nothing uselessly.

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.
Mother Teresa

All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.
Thomas Browne

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
Gerard De Nerva

Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.  
Ralph Waldo Emerson

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.  
John Burroughs

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
Orison Swett Marden 

The mountain brows, the rocks, the peaks, are sleeping,
Uplands and gorges hush!
The thousand moorland things are stillness keeping;
The beasts under each bush
Crouch, and the hivèd bees
Rest in their honeyed ease;
In the purple sea fish lie as they were dead,
And each bird folds his wing over his head.

Alcman, Nature’s Calm

Nature - the Gentlest Mother is,
Impatient of no Child -
The feeblest - or the waywardest -
Her Admonition mild -
Emily Dickenson, Nature the Gentlest Mother is.

A woodland in full colour is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
Hal Borland

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
