How beautiful was the spectacle of nature not yet touched by the often perverse wisdom of man!
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose
I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream.
Vincent Van Gogh
No time to see, when woods we pass, where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, streams full of stars, like skies at night.
W.H. Davies, Leisure
The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe, the less taste we shall have for destruction.
We create a meaningful life by what we accept as true and by what we create in the pursuit of truth, love, beauty, and adoration of nature.
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
The month of May is the pleasant time; its face is beautiful; the blackbird sings his full song, the living wood is his holding, the cuckoos are singing and ever singing; there is a welcome before the brightness of the summer.
Lady Gregory, Finn, Son of Cumhal
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty if only we have the eyes to see them.
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery - air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy."
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
People make a great deal of the flowers of spring and the leaves of autumn, but for me a night like this, with a clear moon shining on snow, is the best - and there is not a trace of color in it.
I was completely astonished by the beauty of nature. Our eyes see just a small fraction of the light in the world. It is a trick to make a colored world, which does not exist outside of human beings.
The sound of thunder, the smell of rain. The earth giving birth to another season. Nature's labor pains... beautiful.
The mountains are calling and I must go.
It showed a kind of obscenity you see only in nature, an obscenity so extreme that it dissolves imperceptibly into beauty.
Richard Preston, The Hot Zone
As the saturating colors of sun-life fade from sight, the ominous moon reaches out its long arm and applies the dark dyes of night.
Daniel J. Rice, This Side of a Wilderness
I like it when a flower or a little tuft of grass grows through a crack in the concrete. It's so fuckin' heroic.
Unlike the majority of people, he did not hate or fear the wilderness; as harsh as the empty lands were, they possessed a grace and a beauty that no artifice could compete with and that he found restorative.
Christopher Paolini, Inheritance
Beauty is the moment when time vanishes and eternity arises.
Amit Ray, Walking the Path of Compassion
Most of what she knew, she'd learned from the wild. Nature had nurtured, tutored, and protected her when no one else would.
Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing
