Nature quotes
Nature
Only those within whose own consciousness the sun rise and set, the leaves burgeon and wither, can be said to be aware of what living is.

- Krutch, Joseph Wood
An extra-terrestrial philosopher, who had watched a single youth up to the age of twenty-one and had never come across any other human being, might conclude that it is the nature of human beings to grow continually taller and wiser in an indefinite progress towards perfection; and this generalization would be just as well founded as the generalization which evolutionists base upon the previous history of this planet.

- Russell, Bertrand
Habit is a second nature that destroys the first. But what is nature? Why is habit not natural? I am very much afraid that nature itself is only a first habit, just as habit is a second nature.

- Pascal, Blaise
The multitude will hardly believe the excessive force of education, and in the difference of modesty between men and women, ascribe that to nature, which is altogether owing to early instruction: Miss is scarce three years old, but she's spoke to every day to hide her leg, and rebuked in good earnest if she shows it; whilst little Master at the same age is bid to take up his coats, and piss like a man.

- Mandeville, Bernard
The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.

- Voltaire
UNDERSTANDING, n. A cerebral secretion that enables one having it to know a house from a horse by the roof on the house. Its nature and laws have been exhaustively expounded by Locke, who rode a house, and Kant, who lived in a horse. His understanding was so keen That all things which he'd felt, heard, seen, He could interpret without fail If he was in or out of jail. He wrote at Inspiration's call Deep disquisitions on them all, Then, pent at last in an asylum, Performed the service to compile'em. So great a writer, all men swore, They never had not read before. Jorrock Wormley

- Ambrose Bierce
It stands to the everlasting credit of science that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man's insecurity before himself and before nature.

- Einstein, Albert
True wit is nature to advantage dressed, what oft was thought, but never so well expressed.

- Pope, Alexander
The common good of a collective -- a race, a class, a state -- was the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism? Does the fault lie in men's hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most sincere. The believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad. Nobody questioned their right to murder since they were murdering for an altruistic purpose. It was accepted that man must be sacrificed for other men. Actors change, but the course of the tragedy remains the same. A humanitarian who starts with the declarations of love for mankind and ends with a sea of blood. It goes on and will go on so long as men believe that an action is good if it is unselfish. That permits the altruist to act and forces his victims to bear it. The leaders of collectivist movements ask nothing of themselves. But observe the results.

- Rand, Ayn
Human nature is not of itself vicious.

- Thomas Paine
Nature understands no jesting. She is always true, always serious, always severe. She is always right, and the errors are always those of man.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Vanity is a vital aid to nature: completely and absolutely necessary to life. It is one of nature's ways to bind you to the earth.

- Smart, Elizabeth
You dehumanize a man as much by returning him to nature - by making him one with rocks, vegetation, and animals - as by turning him into a machine. Both the natural and the mechanical are the opposite of that which is uniquely human. Nature is a self-made machine, more perfectly automated than any automated machine. To create something in the image of nature is to create a machine, and it was by learning the inner working of nature that man became a builder of machines. It is also obvious that when man domesticated animals and plants he acquired self-made machines for the production of food, power, and beauty.

- Eric Hoffer
Gossip is nature's telephone.

- Aleichem, Sholom
Nature is indifferent to the survival of the human species, including Americans.

- Stevenson, Adlai E.
Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of reality which represent his fundamental view of man's nature.

- Rand, Ayn
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

- Aristotle
After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on -- have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear -- what remains? Nature remains.

- Whitman, Walt
What law, what reason can deny that gift so sweet, so natural that God has given a stream, a fish, a beast, a bird?

- Calderon de la Barca, Pedro
It is absolutely impossible to transcend the laws of nature. What can change in historically different circumstances is only the form in which these laws expose themselves.

- Marx, Karl
