This is a compilation of thoughts and quotes that I have found or written recently, as well as many that I've collected throughout the years. Most thoughts are posted randomly, as I feel inspired. A listing of quotes can be found alphabetically (check the 2008 and 2009 archives listing), or by source.

Feel free to suggest additions!

Nature Quotes

1. In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous. – Aristotle

2. Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayward sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

3. Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. - Albert Einstein

4. Nature is the living, visible garment of God. - Goethe

5. A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books. - Walt Whitman

6. I've always regarded nature as the clothing of God. - Alan Hovhaness

7. And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. - Kahlil Gibran

8. I'll tell you how the sun rose one ribbon at a time. - Emily Dickinson

9. Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers, “Do you like it? I did it just for you." – Max Lucado

10. The more I study nature, the more I am amazed at the Creator - Louis Pasteur

11. Nature is the art of God. - Dante Alighieri

12. God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on the trees and flowers and clouds and stars. - Martin Luther

13. The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. - Joseph B. Wirthlin
