The fish in the water is silent,
the animal on the earth is noisy,
the bird in the air is singing,
But man has in him
the silence of the sea,
the noise of the earth
and the music of the air.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Bengali poet, Brahmo Samaj (syncretic Hindu monotheist), philosopher, artist, composer and writer


Everything in nature contains all the power of nature.
Everything is made of one hidden stuff.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
American essayist and poet; leader of the Transcendentalist movement


The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.

Anne Frank (1929-1945)
German Jewish teenager who lived in hiding with her family and four friends in Amsterdam for two years during the Nazi occupation. They were eventually discovered and she was sent to the Bergen-Belson concentration camp, where she died of typhus.

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience.
Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.

Trees are the earth's effort to speak to the listening heaven.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Bengali poet, Asia's first Nobel laureate


Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars...and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole of existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers -- for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.

Osho (1931-1990)
Indian spiritual teacher; the name accepted by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Earth laughs in flowers.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you...
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

John Muir (1839-1914)
Born in Scotland; writer and one of the earliest modern preservationists of nature


And now, the Last Word:

Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


























Bonus quote:
When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
