Direct contact with nature can soothe us, elevate our mood.
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein
There is new life in the soil for every man. There is healing in the trees for tired minds and for our overburdened spirits, there is strength in the hills, if only we will lift up our eyes. Remember that nature is your great restorer.
~ Calvin Coolidge
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
~ William Shakespeare
I must go to Nature disarmed of perspective and stretch myself like a large transparent canvas upon her in the hope that, my submission being perfect, the imprint of a beautiful and useful truth would be taken.
~ John Updike, The Centaur
~ Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks
A town is saved, not more by the righteous men in it, than by the woods and swamps that surround it.
~ Henry David Thoreau
