Earth Quotes

The human body is a magazine of inventions, the patent office, where are the models from which every hint is taken. All the tools and engines on earth are only extensions of its limbs and senses.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A person who cares about the earth will resonate with its purity.

Sally Fox

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

The earth is like a beautiful bride who needs no manmade jewels to heighten her loveliness.

Kahlil Gibran

On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.

Jules Renard

The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.

G K Chesterton

Birds were flying from continent to continent long before we were. They reached the coldest place on Earth, Antarctica, long before we did. They can survive in the hottest of deserts. Some can remain on the wing for years at a time. They can girdle the globe. Now, we have taken over the earth and the sea and the sky, but with skill and care and knowledge, we can ensure that there is still a place on Earth for birds in all their beauty and variety if we want to and surely, we should.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough

A sweet new blossom of humanity, fresh fallen from God's own home, to flower on earth

Gerald Massey

If we consider the superiority of the human species, the size of its brain, its powers of thinking, language and organization, we can say this: were there the slightest possibility that another rival or superior species might appear, on earth or elsewhere, man would use every means at his disposal to destroy it.

George Bernard Shaw

One must be aware that one is continually being tested in what one wishes most in order to make clear whether one's heart is on earth or in heaven.

Pir Vilayat Khan

I feel within me the future life. I am like a forest that has been razed; the new shoots are stronger and brisker. I shall most certainly rise toward the heavens. The sun's rays bathe my head. The earth gives me its generous sap, but the heavens illuminate me with the reflection of-of worlds unknown. Some say the soul results merely from bodily powers. Why, then, does my soul become brighter when my bodily powers begin to waste away? Winter is above me, but eternal spring is within my heart. I inhale even now the fragrance of lilacs, violets, and roses, just as I did when I was twenty. The nearer my approach to the end, the plainer is the sound of immortal symphonies of worlds which invite me. It is wonderful yet simple. It is a fairy tale; it is history. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose and in verse; history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode, and song; all of these have I tried. But I feel that I haven't given utterance to the thousandth part of what lies within me. When I go to the grave I can say as others have said, "I have finished my day's work." But I cannot say, "I have finished my life." My day's work will begin again the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, but opens on the dawn.

Victor Marie Hugo

When the time arrives for you To leave this life for another life, If you wish to go To a beautiful and soulful world, Then you will need a valid passport, And that passport is your meditation Here on earth
