Nature quotes
Nature
1.

If we are to learn to improve the quality of the decisions we make, we need to accept the mysterious nature of our snap judgments.

- Malcolm Gladwell
2.

Religion. A daughter of Hope and Fear, explaining to Ignorance the nature of the Unknowable.

- Bierce, Ambrose
3.

Pleasure is Nature's test, her sign of approval. When man is happy, he is in harmony with himself and his environment.

- Wilde, Oscar
4.

Holidays are in no sense an alternative to the congestion and bustle of cities and work. Quite the contrary. People look to escape into an intensification of the conditions of ordinary life, into a deliberate aggravation of those conditions: further from nature, nearer to artifice, to abstraction, to total pollution, to well above average levels of stress, pressure, concentration and monotony -- this is the ideal of popular entertainment. No one is interested in overcoming alienation; the point is to plunge into it to the point of ecstasy. That is what holidays are for.

- Baudrillard, Jean
5.

Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.

- Lorraine Anderson
6.

Man is to himself the most wonderful object in nature; for he cannot conceive what the body is, still less what the mind is, and least of all how a body should be united to a mind. This is the consummation of his difficulties, and yet it is his very being.

- Blaise Pascal
7.

No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.

8.

He who asks of life nothing but the improvement of his own nature is less liable than anyone else to miss and waste life.

- Amiel, Henri Frederic
9.

By nature all men are equal in liberty, but not in other endowments.

- Aquinas, St. Thomas
10.

Because impudence is a vice, it does not follow that modesty is a virtue; it is built upon shame, a passion in our nature, and may be either good or bad according to the actions performed from that motive.

- Mandeville, Bernard
11.

Thou mayest as well expect to grow stronger by always eating as wiser by always reading. Too much overcharges Nature, and turns more into disease than nourishment. 'Tis thought and digestion which makes books serviceable, and give health and vigor to the mind.

- Fuller, R. Buckminster
12.

Nature always tends to act in the simplest way.

- Bernoulli
13.

Men's natures are alike, it is their habits that carry them far apart.

- Confucius
14.

Nature goes her own way and all that to us seems an exception is really according to order.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
15.

IMMODEST, adj. Having a strong sense of one's own merit, coupled with a feeble conception of worth in others. There was once a man in Ispahan Ever and ever so long ago, And he had a head, the phrenologists said, That fitted him for a show. For his modesty's bump was so large a lump (Nature, they said, had taken a freak) That its summit stood far above the wood Of his hair, like a mountain peak. So modest a man in all Ispahan, Over and over again they swore -- So humble and meek, you would vainly seek; None ever was found before. Meantime the hump of that awful bump Into the heavens contrived to get To so great a height that they called the wight The man with the minaret. There wasn't a man in all Ispahan Prouder, or louder in praise of his chump: With a tireless tongue and a brazen lung He bragged of that beautiful bump Till the Shah in a rage sent a trusty page Bearing a sack and a bow-string too, And that gentle child explained as he smiled: "A little present for you." The saddest man in all Ispahan, Sniffed at the gift, yet accepted the same. "If I'd lived," said he, "my humility Had given me deathless fame!" Sukker Uffro

- Ambrose Bierce
16.

When thou art quiet and silent, then art thou as God was before nature and creature; thou art that which God then wats; thou art that whereof he made thy nature and creature: Then thou hearest and seest even with that wherewith God himself saw and heard in thee, before every thine own willing or thine own seeing began.

- Boehme, Jacob
17.

I am partial to ladies if they are nice. I suppose it is my nature. I am not quite a gentleman but you would hardly notice it.

- Ashford, Daisy
18.

Nature is full of freaks, and now puts an old head on young shoulders, and then takes a young heart heating under fourscore winters.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
19.

Our natures are a lot like oil, mix us with anything else, and we strive to swim on top.

- Beaumont, Francis
20.

Christ may come to us when our thoughts are cleaving to the ground, and ready to grow earthy of the earth--through noble poetry, noble music, noble art--through aught which awakens once more in us the instinct of the true, the beautiful, and the good. He may come to us when our souls are restless and weary, through the repose of Nature--the repose of the lonely snow-peak and of the sleeping forest, of the clouds of sunset and of the summer sea, and whisper Peace. Or He may come, as He comes on winter nights to many a gallant soul--not in the repose of Nature, but in her rage--in howling storm and blinding foam and ruthless rocks and whelming surge--and whisper to them even so--as the sea swallows all of them which it can take--of calm beyond, which this world cannot give and cannot take away.
And therefore let us say in utter faith, Come as Thou seest best--but in whatsoever way Thou comest, Even so come, Lord Jesus. Amen.

- Last Sermon. MS. 1874.
