All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.
Thomas Browne, Sr. quotes
See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta quotes
The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.
Soren Kierkegaard quotes
Tis plain that there is not in nature a point of stability to be found: everything either ascends or declines. When wars are ended abroad, sedition begins at home, and when men are freed from fighting for necessity, they quarrel through ambition.
Walter Scott, Sr. quotes
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
Lord Byron quotes
It is the nature of a great mind to be calm and undisturbed.
Those things that nature denied to human sight, she revealed to the eyes of the soul.
A poet ought not to pick nature's pocket. Let him borrow, and so borrow as to repay by the very act of borrowing. Examine nature accurately, but write from recollection, and trust more to the imagination than the memory.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
Thus happiness depends, as nature shows, less on exterior things than most suppose.
William Cowper quotes
A friend may be often found and lost, but an old friend never can be found, and nature has provided that he cannot easily be lost.
Samuel Johnson quotes
