Topic: Nature Quotes - Famous Nature Quotes, Sayings about Nature
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.
John Muir

Flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher

Choose only one master - Nature.
Rembrandt

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Marie Curie

Nature is the art of God.
Dante Alighieri

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.
Walt Whitman

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
William Shakespeare

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.
William Wordsworth

To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
Helen Keller

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.
Anne Frank

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
The Brook

If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Percy Bysshe Shelley

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.
Mother Teresa

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.
Anton Chekhov
Uncle Vanya

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Joyce Kilmer

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Rabindranath Tagore

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.
Blaise Pascal

The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration.
Claude Monet

Broom out the floor now, lay the fender by,
And plant this bee-sucked bough of woodbine there
And let the window down. The butterfly
Floats in upon the sunbeam, and the fair
Tanned face of June, the nomad gipsy, laughs
Above her widespread wares, the while she tells
The farmers' fortunes in the fields, and quaffs
The water from the spider-peopled wells.
Francis Ledwidge
June

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.
John Burroughs

There is nothing pleasanter than spading when the ground is soft and damp.
John Steinbeck

The day I see a leaf is a marvel of a day.
Kenneth Patton

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the sun.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
The Cloud

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Kahlil Gibran

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
e.e. cummings

The poetry of the earth is never dead.
John Keats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
William Butler Yeats
The Lake Isle of Innisfree

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Lao Tzu

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
This is not done by jostling in the street.
William Blake

Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself.
Henry David Thoreau

The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky;
Upon the brimming water among the stones
Are nine and fifty swans.
William Butler Yeats
The Wild Swans at Coole

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright

The sun, with all those plants revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.
Galileo

Nature abhors a vacuum.
Aristotle

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
Henry David Thoreau

A weed is no more than a flower in disguise.
James Russell Lowell

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.
Linda Hogan

A flower is an educated weed.
Luther Burbank

To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.
Mahatma Gandhi

On every stem, on every leaf ... and at the root of everything that grew, was a professional specialist in the shape of grub, caterpillar, aphis, or other expert, whose business it was to devour that particular part.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
Rachel Carson

It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.
Rachel Carson

Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
Rachel Carson

The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
William Blake

To one who has been long in city pent,
'Tis very sweet to look into the fair
And open face of heaven, - to breathe a prayer
Full in the smile of the blue firmament.
John Keats
Sonnet XIV

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare
As You Like It

Any man that walks the mead
In bud, or blade, or bloom, may find
A meaning suited to his mind.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

There is not a sprig of grass that shoots uninteresting to me.
Thomas Jefferson

If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature's way.
Aristotle
Nichomachean Ethics

Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."
Maya Angelou

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.
Har Borland

Nature is too thin a screen; the glory of the omnipresent God bursts through everywhere.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature is a revelation of God; Art is a revelation of man.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Nature has given man one tongue, but two ears, that we may hear twice as much as we speak.
Epictetus

Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Nature is beneficent. I praise her and all her works. She is silent and wise. She is cunning, but for good ends. She has brought me here and will also lead me away. She may scold me, but she will not hate her work. I trust her.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

But mighty Nature bounds as from her birth;
The sun is in the heavens, and life on earth:
Flowers in the valley, splendor in the beam,
Health on the gale, and freshness in the stream.
Lord Byron

Study nature, not books.
Jean Louis Agassiz

I am at two with nature.
Woody Allen

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who posses it.
Henry Ward Beecher

To destroy is still the strongest instinct in nature.
Max Beerbohm

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
Ingrid Bergman

It is the law of nature that woman should be held under the dominance of man.
Confucius

Nature can do more than physicians.
Oliver Cromwell

To the artist there is never anything ugly in nature.
August Rodin

Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain'd his noon.
Stay, stay,
Until the hasting day
Has run
But to the even-song;
And, having pray'd together, we
Will go with you along.
Robert Herrick

You may drive out Nature with a pitchfork, yet she will always hurry back.
Horace

Trees and fields tell me nothing; men are my teachers.
Plato

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
Walt Whitman

I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can't touch with decay.
Bob Dylan

Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher.
William Wordsworth

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare? -
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
W. H. Davies

To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
