Nature quotes
Nature
One cannot fix one's eyes on the commonest natural production without finding food for a rambling fancy.

- Jane Austen
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

- Henry Ward Beecher
It is not women's fault if we are so tender. It is in the nature of the lives we live. And further, it would be a terrible catastrophe if men had to live men's lives and women's also. Which is precisely what has happened today -- to women.

- James, Selma
If winds are the spirit of the sky's ocean, the clouds are the texture. Their is easily the most uninhibited dominion of the earth. Nothing in physical shape is too fantastic for them. They can be round as apples or as fine as string, as dense as a jungle, as wispy as a whiff of down, as mild as puddle water or as potent as the belch of a volcano. Some are thunderous anvils formed by violent up drafts from the warm earth. Some are ragged coattails of storms that have passed. Some are stagnant blankets of warm air resting on cold. I have seen clouds in the dawn that looked like a pink Sultan with his pale harem maidens and a yellow slob of eunuch lolling impotent in the background.

- Murchie, Guy
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.

- Frank Lloyd Wright
Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.

- Camus, Albert
Politeness is one half good nature and the other half good lying.

- Mary Wilson Little
Man's chief enemy is his own unruly nature and the dark forces put up within him.

- Jones, Ernest
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.

- Diderot, Denis
Forgive him, for he believes that the customs of his tribe are the laws of nature!

- Shaw, George Bernard
I know no subject more elevating, more amazing, more ready to the poetical enthusiasm, the philosophical reflection, and the moral sentiment than the works of nature. Where can we meet such variety, such beauty, such magnificence?

- Thomson, James
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
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

- Bergman, Ingrid
Only that thing is free which exists by the necessities of its own nature, and is determined in its actions by itself alone.

- Spinoza, Baruch (Benedict de)
The most enviable writers are those who, quite often unanalytically and unconsciously, have realized that there are different facets to their nature and are able to live and work with now one, now another, in the ascendant.

- Dorothea Brande
The features of our face are hardly more than gestures which force of habit made permanent. Nature, like the destruction of Pompeii, like the metamorphosis of a nymph into a tree, has arrested us in an accustomed movement.

- Proust, Marcel
The old fairy superstition, the old legends and ballads, the old chronicles of feudal war and chivalry, the earlier moralities and mysteries--these fed Shakespeare's youth. Why should they not feed our children's? That inborn delight of the young in all that is marvellous and fantastic--has that a merely evil root? No, surely! it is a most pure part of their spiritual nature; a part of "the heaven which lies about us in our infancy;" angel-wings with which the free child leaps the prison-walls of sense and custom, and the drudgery of earthly life. It is a God-appointed means for keeping alive what noble Wordsworth calls those ". . . . obstinate questionings, . . . . . . Blank misgivings of a creature Moving about in worlds not realised."

- Introductory Lecture, Queen's College. 1848.
Night is a dead monotonous period under a roof; but in the open world it passes lightly, with its stars and dews and perfumes, and the hours are marked by changes in the face of Nature. What seems a kind of temporal death to people choked between walls and curtains, is only a light and living slumber to the man who sleeps afield.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
It is the nature of thought to find its way into action.

- Bovee, Christian Nevell
Some tension is necessary for the soul to grow, and we can put that tension to good use. We can look for every opportunity to give and receive love, to appreciate nature, to heal our wounds and the wounds of others, to forgive, and to serve.

- Borysenko, Joan
