Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money. ~Cree Indian Proverb
There is a destiny that makes us brothers: none goes his way alone,
All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.
Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills. ~Voltaire, letter to Count Schomberg
Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. ~Rachel Carson
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. ~John Muir
