Favorite Quotations

Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere. ~Blaise Pascal~

"For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance."
-kahlil gibran

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. ~Frank Llyod Wright~

"Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only
waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps
everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something
helpless that wants our love." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke~"

God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox~

"Be patient toward all
that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions
themselves like locked rooms
and like books that are written
in a very foreign tongue.

Do not now seek the answers,
which cannot be given you
because you would not be able
to live them.

And the point is, to live
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will find them
gradually, without noticing it,
and live along some distant day
into the answer."

~ Rainer Maria Rilke~

"Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him?" ~Pierre Troubetzkoy~

Mankind: Nature's Most Destructive Parasite!

“So, often in the course
Of life's few fleeting years,
A single pleasure costs
The soul a thousand tears.”

~Francis William Bourdillon~

"Nature never did betray the heart that loved her."
-William Wordsworth-
