Nature Quotes

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, help to make earth happy, like heaven above.

Julia Fletcher Carney 1823

The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.

Chief Seattle

All human beings, by nature, desire to know.

Aristotle 384BC

Happiness is an endowment and not an acquisition. It depends more upon temperament and disposition than environment.

John J. Ingalls

If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; Every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 1807

Joy is one of nature's greatest medicines. Joy is always healthy. A pleasant state of mind tends to bring abnormal conditions back to normal.

Catherine Ponder

Subdue your appetites, my dears, and you've conquered human nature.

Charles Dickens 1812

Take time to think.. it is the source of power. Take time to play.. it is the secret of prepetual youth. Take time to readÖ it is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to pray.. it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to laughÖ it is the music of the soul. Take time to giveÖ it is too short a day to be selfish.

Anon xx

Nature is my friend. Life is my teacher of philosophy. History is my guide.

Pirapakaran

We shrink from change; yet is there anything that can come into being without it? What does Nature hold dearer, or more proper to herself? Could you have a hot bath unless the firewood underwent some change.. is it possible for any useful thing to be achieved without change? Do you not see, then, that change in yourself is of the same order, and no less necessary to Nature?

Marcus Aurelius 121

Christianity exhorted man to set himself up against Nature, but did so in the name of his spiritual and disinterested attributes. Pragmatism exhorts him to do so in the name of his practical attributes. Formerly man was divine because he had been able to acquire the concept of justice, the idea of law, the sense of God; today he is divine because he has been able to create equipment which makes him the master of matter.

Julien Benda

Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her.

Jacob Bronowski

Of all those arts in which the wise excel, Nature's chief masterpiece is writing well.

Andr Breton

Our credulity is a part of the imperfection of our natures. It is inherent in us to desire to generalize, when we ought, on the contrary, to guard ourselves very carefully from this tendency.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Another powerful principle of our nature, which is the spring of war, is the passion for superiority, for triumph, for power. The human mind is aspiring, impatient of inferiority, and eager for preeminence and control.

William Ellery Channing
