Nature quotes
Nature
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.

- Mackay, Charles
What a blessed thing it is, that Nature, when she invented, manufactured, and patented her authors, contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left!

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr
CRAYFISH, n. A small crustacean very much resembling the lobster, but less indigestible. In this small fish I take it that human wisdom is admirably figured and symbolized; for whereas the crayfish doth move only backward, and can have only retrospection, seeing naught but the perils already passed, so the wisdom of man doth not enable him to avoid the follies that beset his course, but only to apprehend their nature afterward. Sir James Merivale

- Ambrose Bierce
I am more and more convinced that our happiness or our unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves.

- Humboldt, Karl Wilhelm Von
The unnatural, that too is natural.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Nature does not give to those who will not spend...

- Baughan, R.J.
Habit is second nature.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The American, by nature, is optimistic. He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly.

- John F. Kennedy
The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due, I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people - no mere father and mother - as I have often said, are enough to provide emotional security for a child. He needs to feel himself one in a world of kinfolk, persons of variety in age and temperament, and yet allied to himself by an indissoluble bond which he cannot break if he could, for nature has welded him into it before he was born.

- Pearl S. Buck
Practice in time becomes second nature.

FROG, n. A reptile with edible legs. The first mention of frogs in profane literature is in Homer's narrative of the war between them and the mice. Skeptical persons have doubted Homer's authorship of the work, but the learned, ingenious and industrious Dr. Schliemann has set the question forever at rest by uncovering the bones of the slain frogs. One of the forms of moral suasion by which Pharaoh was besought to favor the Israelities was a plague of frogs, but Pharaoh, who liked them _fricasees_, remarked, with truly oriental stoicism, that he could stand it as long as the frogs and the Jews could; so the programme was changed. The frog is a diligent songster, having a good voice but no ear. The libretto of his favorite opera, as written by Aristophanes, is brief, simple and effective -- "brekekex-koax"; the music is apparently by that eminent composer, Richard Wagner. Horses have a frog in each hoof -- a thoughtful provision of nature, enabling them to shine in a hurdle race.

- Ambrose Bierce
A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.

- Apollinaire, Guillaume
Now I believe I can hear the philosophers protesting that it can only be misery to live in folly, illusion, deception and ignorance, but it isn't --it's human.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
To be a well favored man is the gift of fortune; but to write and read comes by nature.

- William Shakespeare
What nature delivers to us is never stale. Because what nature creates has eternity in it.

- Isaac Bashevis Singer
You cannot get anything out of nature or from God by gambling; only out of your neighbor.

- Ruskin, John
You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon
When you affirm your own rightness in the universe, then you co-operate with others easily and automatically as part of your own nature. You, being yourself, helps others be themselves. Because you recognize your own uniqueness you will not need to dominate others, nor cringe before them

- Roberts, Jane
One mustn't allow acting to be like stockbroker -- you must not take it just as a means of earning a living, to go down every day to do a job of work. The big thing is to combine punctuality, efficiency, good nature, obedience, intelligence, and concentration with an unawareness of what is going to happen next, thus keeping yourself available for excitement.

- Gielgud, John
An enemy can partly ruin a man, but it takes a good-natured injudicious friend to complete the thing and make it perfect.

- Mark Twain
