for your soul is alive

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive. – Eleanora Duse

Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher. – William Wordsworth

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. – Khalil Gibran

The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater. ― J.R.R. Tolkien

There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature. – Aristotle

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. -George Washington Carver

Nature is but a name for an effect, whose cause is God. – William Cowper

We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts. – William Hazlitt

Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf. – Albert Schweitzer

Take a moment to stop and see the beauty around to you. To breathe in the fresh air. To rest in the One who made it.
