The refreshing pleasure from the first view of nature, after the pain of illness, and
the confinement of a sick-chamber, is above the conceptions, as well as the
descriptions, of those in health.

Ann Radcliffe, The Mysteries of Udolpho, 1764
Nature is just enough; but men and women must comprehend and accept her
Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825 - 1921)
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), Parts of Animals
Nature does nothing uselessly.
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), Pol i ti cs

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time
proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and
respecting her seniority.

E. B. White (1899 - 1985)

Mountains inspire awe in any human person who has a soul. They remind us of our frailty, our unimportance, of the briefness of our span upon this earth. They touch the heavens, and sail serenely at an altitude beyond even the imaginings of a mere mortal.

Elizabeth Aston, The Exploits & Adventures of Miss Alethea Darcy, 2005
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
Frank Lloyd Wright (1869 - 1959)
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative.
H. G. Wells (1866 - 1946)
Nature is wont to hide herself.
Heraclitus (540 BC - 480 BC), On the Universe
One cannot fix one's eyes on the commonest natural production without finding
food for a rambling fancy.
Jane Austen (1775 - 1817), Mansfield Park
It's amazing how quickly nature consumes human places after we turn our backs on
them. Life is a hungry thing.
Scott Westerfeld, Peeps, 2005
A vacuum is a hell of a lot better than some of the stuff that nature replaces it with.
Tennessee Williams (1911 - 1983), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955)

After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on - have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear - what remains? Nature remains.

Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees
and flowers and watercraft; a certain free-margin, and even vagueness - ignorance,
credulity - helps your enjoyment of these things.

Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)
The goal of life is living in agreement with nature.
