Kutipan (Quote) - Nature (4)

Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.
Ansel Adams

The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
Jean Giraudoux

Mother Nature may be forgiving this year, or next year, but eventually she's going to come around and whack you. You've got to be prepared.
Geraldo Rivera

Sorrows gather around great souls as storms do around mountains; but, like them, they break the storm and purify the air of the plain beneath them.
Jean Paul

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!
Edward Abbey

The poetry of the earth is never dead.
John Keats

Having family responsibilities and concerns just has to make you a more understanding person.
Sandra Day O'Connor

Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.
Robert Green Ingersoll

Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.
Antonio Porchia

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

The mind, in proportion as it is cut off from free communication with nature, with revelation, with God, with itself, loses its life, just as the body droops when debarred from the air and the cheering light from heaven.
William Ellery Channing

There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down.
Don DeLillo

Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise!
Wallace Stevens

I'm very gregarious, but I love being in the hills on my own.
Norman MacCaig

You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.
Hal Borland

Nothing is so beautiful as spring - when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing.
Gerard Manley Hopkins

For every person who has ever lived there has come, at last, a spring he will never see. Glory then in the springs that are yours.
Pam Brown

I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.
John Muir

Nature is wont to hide herself.

Occasionally I have come across a last patch of snow on top of a mountain in late May or June. There's something very powerful about finding snow in summer.
Andy Goldsworthy

Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up, holding wonder like a cup.
Sara Teasdale

There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.
Annie Dillard

Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.
Saint Basil

I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.
Edward Steichen

The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
Jules Verne

I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
Georgia O'Keeffe

In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.
John Fowles

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.
Charles Lindbergh

Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.
Theodore Roethke

Bats drink on the wing, like swallows, by sipping the surface, as they play over pools and streams.
Gilbert White

The groves were God's first temples.
William C. Bryant

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.
Hal Borland

Mere goodness can achieve little against the power of nature.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.
Aldo Leopold

Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.
Diane Ackerman

The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
Joseph Wood Krutch

When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.
James Whitcomb Riley

Understanding the laws of nature does not mean that we are immune to their operations.
David Gerrold

Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties, with which nature hath furnished them to the shame of art.
Izaak Walton
