“The Book Of Nature” — Part I

“The book of nature has no beginning, as it has no end. Open this book where you will, and at any period of your life, and if you have the desire to acquire knowledge you will find it of intense interest, and no matter how long or how intently you study the pages, your interest will not flag, for in nature there is no finality.”

― Jim Corbett

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

“Nature is one of the most underutilized treasures in life. It has the power to unburden hearts and reconnect to that inner place of peace.”
― Dr. Janice Anderson & Kiersten Anderson

“But silence continued in the layers of the earth, and this density that I could feel at my shoulders continued harmonious, sustained, unaltered through eternity. I lay there pondering my situation, lost in the desert, and in danger, naked between sky and sand and stars, withdrawn by too much silence from the poles of my life.”

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“Going
Back and
Forth
Between
Here
And the valley
Of the dead
To seek
Hidden answers
To eternal
Questions”
― Hanna Abi Akl

“With thousands of years of history frozen in time, it’s no wonder that many southerners like me romanticize the north as a place where we can freeze our former selves, thaw, and then bloom anew. Here it’s just you, the land, and your thoughts, and you can’t leave until you’ve wrestled with yourself and emerged a survivor. But then again, the light is much more intense up here and everything looks different because of it. The sun hasn’t set in a couple of months, and you can see things much more clearly when it is light all of the time.”

― Shannon M Mullen

“If man doesn’t learn to treat the oceans and the rainforest with respect, man will become extinct.”

“The city is a fact in nature, like a cave, a run of mackerel or an ant-heap. But it is also a conscious work of art, and it holds within its communal framework many simpler and more personal forms of art. Mind takes form in the city; and in turn, urban forms condition mind.”

Lewis Mumford

The whole of nature is life.
Albert Einstein

The world is a beautiful book, but of little use to him who cannot read it.

Carlo Goldoni
