Byron J. Rees
We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.
Byron J. Rees
Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.

John Donne
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face." [ ]
Byron J. Rees
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
Ray Comfort
Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
Byron J. Rees
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Isaac Newton
Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy
G.K. Chesterton
The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister.
Byron J. Rees
Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
Byron J. Rees
A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.

C.S. Lewis
We do not want merely to see beauty... we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have peopled air and earth and water with gods and goddesses, and nymphs and elves.

G.K. Chesterton
The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate. This gives to the typically Christian pleasure in this earth a strange touch of lightness that is almost frivolity. Nature was a solemn mother to the worshipers of Isis and Cybele. Nature was a solemn mother to Wordsworth or to Emerson. But Nature is not solemn to Francis of Assisi or to George Herbert. To St. Francis, Nature is a sister, and even a younger sister: a little, dancing sister, to be laughed at as well as loved.
Jonathan Edwards
Surely there is something in the unruffled calm of nature that overawes our little anxieties and doubts; the sight of the deep-blue sky and the clustering stars above seems to impart a quiet to the mind.

C.S. Lewis
Walking and talking are two very great pleasures, but it is a mistake to combine them. Our own noise blots out the sounds and silences of the outdoor world; and talking leads almost inevitably to smoking, and then farewell to nature as far as one of our senses is concerned. The only friend to walk with is one who so exactly shares your taste for each mood of the countryside that a glance, a halt, or at most a nudge, is enough to assure us that the pleasure is shared.
Blaise Pascal
Nature has made all her truths independent of one another. Our art makes one dependent on the other.

Thomas Carlyle
The word of Mohammad is a voice direct from nature's own heart - all else is wind in comparison.
Byron J. Rees
Nature is as well adapted to our weakness as to our strength.
Francis Bacon
Nature cannot be commanded except by being obeyed.
Blaise Pascal
Those honor nature well, who teach that she can speak on everything.

Isaac Newton
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age
