Nature Quotes

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

J.R.R. Tolkien

We of the genus Homo ride the logs that float down the Round river, and by a little judicious "burling" we have learned to guide their direction and speed. This feat entitles us to the specific appellation sapiens. The technique of burling is called economics, the remembering of old routes is called in history, the selection of new ones is called statesmanship, the conversation about oncoming rifles and rapids is called politics. Some of the crew aspire to burl not only their own blogs, but the whole flotilla as well. This collective bargaining with nature is called national planning.

Aldo Leopold

Labor is the only prayer that Nature answers.

Robert Green Ingersoll

My heart is tuned to the quietness that the stillness of nature inspires.

Hazrat Inayat Khan†

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 GodÖI firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

Anne Frank

To find a career to which you are adapted by nature, and then to work hard at it, is about as near to a formula for success and happiness as the world provides. One of the fortunate aspects of this formula is that, granted the right career has been found, the hard work takes care of itself. Then hard work is not hard work at all.

Mark Sullivan

States that rise quickly, just as all the other things of nature that are born and grow rapidly, cannot have roots and ramifications; the first†bad weather†kills them

Niccolo Machiavelli

It is my deliberate opinion that the one essential requisite of human welfare in all ways is scientific knowledge of human nature.

Harriet Martineau

A person should go out on the water on a fine day to a small distance from a beautiful coast, if he would see Nature really smile. Never does she look so delightful, as when the sun is brightly reflected by the water, while the waves are gently rippling, and the prospect receives life and animation from the glancing transit of an occasional row-boat, and the quieter motion of a few small vessels. But the land must be well in sight; not only for its own sake, but because the immensity and awfulness of a mere sea-view would ill accord with the other parts of the glittering and joyous scene

Augustus William Hare

Everything that looks to the future elevates human nature. Never is life so low or so little as when occupied with the present.

Walter Savage Landor

Nature cares nothing for logic, our human logic: she has her own, which we do not recognize and do not acknowledge until we are crushed under its wheel

Edgar Z. Friedenberg

Revenge is a kind of wild justice; which the more man's nature runs to, the more ought law to weed it out.

Francis Bacon

A stern discipline pervades all nature, which is a little cruel that it may be very kind.
