Mutability of temper and inconsistency with ourselves is the greatest weakness of human nature.

Joseph Addison

A light wind swept over the corn; and all nature laughed in the sunshine.

Anne Bront

The system of nature, of which man is a part, tends to be self-balancing, self-adjusting, self-cleansing. Not so with technology.

E.F. Schumacher

The throwing out of balance of the resources of nature throws out of balance also the lives of men.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

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

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

John Burroughs

In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous

Aristotle

In the presence of nature, a wild delight runs through the man, in spite of real sorrows.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

We cannot command Nature except by obeying her.

Francis Bacon

Good breeding is the result of good sense, some good nature, and a little self-denial for the sake of others.

Lord Chesterfield

Arrogance is a mixture of impertinence, disobedience, indiscipline, rudeness, harshness, and a self-assertive nature.

Swami Sivananda

Novelists are perhaps the last people in the world to be entrusted with opinions. The nature of a novel is that it has no opinions, only the dialectic of contrary views, some of which, all of which, may be untenable and even silly. A novelist should not be too intelligent either, although he may be permitted to be an intellectual.

Anthony Burgess

Every man wants a woman to appeal to his better side, his nobler instincts and his higher nature - and another woman to help him forget them.

Helen Rowland

Nature abhors a vacuum but why do most people hasten to fill in the blanks with garbage?

Vanna Bonta

What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism.

Albert Einstein

I think the true gardener is a lover of his flowers, not a critic of them. I think the true gardener is the reverent servant of Nature, not her truculent, wife-beating master. I think the true gardener, the older he grows, should more and more develop a humble, grateful and uncertain spirit.

Reginald Farrer

Nothing is given to man on earth - struggle is built into the nature of life, and conflict is possible - a villain but a hero. What we honor about the cowboy of the Old West is his willingness to stand up to evil and to do it alone, if necessary. The cowboy is a symbol of the crucial virtues of courage and independence.

Andrew Bernstein

All who have achieved excellence in art possess one thing in common; that is, a mind to be one with nature, throughout the seasons.

Matsuo Bash

I think we're going to the moon because it's in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It's by the nature of his deep inner soul ... we're required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.

Neil Alden Armstrong

It is well known to researchers of nature that one cannot perform even the slightest movement without motivation, meaning without somehow benefiting oneself. When, for example, one moves ones hand from the chair to the table it is because one thinks that by putting ones hand on the table one will thus receive greater pleasure. If one would not think so, one would leave one's hand on the chair for the rest of one's life without moving it an inch, all the more so concerning greater efforts.

Yehuda Ashlag

The variety of life in nature can be compared to a vast library of unread books, and the plundering of nature is comparable to the random discarding of whole volumes without having opened them, and learned from them. Our critical dependence on the great variety of nature for the progress we have already made has been amply documented. Indifference to the loss of species is, in effect, indifference to the future, and therefore a shameful carelessness about our children.

Peter Matthiessen

Every time we get slapped down, we can say, Thank you Mother Nature, because it means we're about to learn something important.

John Norris Bahcall

We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, and winding streams with tangled growth, as "wild." Only to the white man was nature a "wilderness" and only to him was the land "infested" with "wild" animals and "savage" people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery. Not until the hairy man from the east came and with brutal frenzy heaped injustices upon us and the families we loved was it "wild" for us. When the very animals of the forest began fleeing from his approach, then it was that for us the "Wild West" began.

Luther Standing Bear

Pilgrimage to the place of the wise is to escape the flame of separation from Nature.
