Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead.
When Death claims the light of my brow,
No flowers of life will cheer me: instead
You may give me my roses now!

- Thomas F. Healey

The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. . . . The ordinary objects of human Endeavour -- property, outward success, luxury -- have always seemed to me contemptible.

- Albert Einstein

Good nature will always supply the absence of beauty; but beauty cannot supply the absence of good nature.

- Joseph Addison

The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration. Oh, the passion for research and the joy of discovery!

- Wanda Landowska

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

- Desiderata

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad
with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
- Iris Murdoch

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under
trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means
a waste of time.
- - J. Lubbuck

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 God.

Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and
that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple
beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace
in all troubles.
- Anne Frank

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and
spring after the winter.
- Rachel Carson

When I bought my farm, I did not know what a bargain I had in the
bluebirds, daffodils and thrushes; as little did I know what
sublime mornings and sunsets I was buying.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

God is the friend of silence. Trees, flowers, grass grow in
silence. See the stars, moon, and sun, how they move
in silence.
- Mother Teresa

Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful.
It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome
it in every fair face, every fair sky, and every fair flower.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The powers of water are immeasurable.
In the form of ice, it can chisel rock as effectively as steel.

Unloosed in a river, it can slice through
layers of volcanic ash like a knife through a cake.

Meandering in a shady stream,
it can make a home for green growing things.
- Peggy Wayburn

How easy and simple it is to live enjoyably when the simple,
interminable blue of the sky, with its long wisps of white
clouds, become a pleasant thing to behold, a thing of
beauty that thrills you every time you care to look skyward.
- John Schindler

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity . . . and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.

—William Blake

There is however, a true music of Nature - the song of the birds, the whisper of leaves, the ripple of waters upon a sandy shore, the wail of wind or sea.


If spring came but once in a century, instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake, and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all hearts to behold the miraculous change!

—Henry Longfellow

Every tree near our house had a name of its own and a special identity. This was the beginning of my love for natural things, for earth and sky, for roads and fields and woods, for trees and grass and flowers; a love which has been second only to my sense of enduring kinship with birds and animals, and all inarticulate creatures.

—Ellen Glasgow
