Quote of the Day
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
Nothing is so beautiful as spring - when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing.
Gerard Manley Hopkins
Let a hundred flowers bloom, let a hundred schools of thought contend.
Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise!
Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up, holding wonder like a cup.
There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down.
In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
The mind, in proportion as it is cut off from free communication with nature, with revelation, with God, with itself, loses its life, just as the body droops when debarred from the air and the cheering light from heaven.
William Ellery Channing
There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.
I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.
The lake and the mountains have become my landscape, my real world.
In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.
I'm very gregarious, but I love being in the hills on my own.
Occasionally I have come across a last patch of snow on top of a mountain in late May or June. There's something very powerful about finding snow in summer.
Flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.
Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.
Understanding the laws of nature does not mean that we are immune to their operations.
There is no forgiveness in nature.
Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties, with which nature hath furnished them to the shame of art.
There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before.
Robert Wilson Lynd
What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else.
The very winds whispered in soothing accents, and maternal Nature bade me weep no more.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Bats drink on the wing, like swallows, by sipping the surface, as they play over pools and streams.
Having contemplated this admirable grove, I proceeded towards the shrubberies on the banks of the river, and though it was now late in December, the aromatic groves appeared in full bloom.
