The Wisdom of Nature

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.  ~Lao Tzu



There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage



The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats



In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.  ~Charles A. Lindbergh, Life, 22 December 1967



Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir




Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.  ~Standing Bear




How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!  ~Emily Dickinson, letter to Mrs. J.S. Cooper, 1880

    • Thank you.

      We hike in some woods on trails (and off trails) that are not very often hiked by other human beings, so the spider webs are everywhere, literally. When the sun catches the webs just right, magic happens. 🙂
