Colors Of The Spirit

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” — Albert Camus


“In the depth of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.” — Albert Camus


“I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this Earth to give us a breathing spell … as we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which are God’s true storehouse. We can learn to synthesize materials for every human need from things that grow.” — George Washington Carver


“Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.” — Rachel Carson


“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.” — Willa Cather


“Time destroys the speculation of men, but it confirms the judgment of nature.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero


“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” — Annie Dillard


“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” — Albert Einstein


“There are an awful lot of scientists today who believe that before very long we shall have unraveled all the secrets of the universe. There will be no puzzles anymore. To me, it’d be really, really tragic because I think one of the most exciting things is this feeling of mystery, feeling of awe, the feeling of looking at a little live thing and being amazed by it and how it has emerged through these hundreds of years of evolution and there it is and it is perfect and why.” — Jane Goodall


“High horns, low horns, silence, and finally a pandemonium of trumpets, rattles, croaks, and cries that almost shakes the bog with its nearness … A new day has begun on the crane marsh. A sense of time lies thick and heavy on such a place … Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet not captured by language.” — Aldo Leopold


“When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.” — John Muir


“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed … so that never again can we have the chance to see ourselves single, separate, vertical and individual in the world, part of the environment of trees and rocks and soil, part of the natural world and competent to belong in it.” — Wallace Stegner


“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.” — Henry David Thoreau


“Trees are the Earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.” — Rabindranath Tagore
