Beauty of Nature Quotes and Sayings

 A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.
{Anne Roiphe}
All women are beautiful, regardless of their looks. You just need to touch their soul with respect and appreciation for their inner beauty and you will be rewarded with joy. The heart is way more important than the package. Women are the God’s greatest gift to man and we should cherish and protect them, each and every one.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

Though beauty gives you a weird sense of entitlement, it’s rather frightening and threatening to have others ascribe such importance to something you know you’re just renting for a while.
 {Candice Bergen}

Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.

{George Wherry; Alpine Notes and the Climbing Foot, 1896}

Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.
{Henry David Thoreau, Journal, 5 January 1856}

The mind in proportion as it cut off from free communication with nature with revelation, with God with itself loses its life, just as the body droops when debarred from the air and the cheering light from heaven.
{William Channing}

Once you have heard the lark, known the swish of feet through grass and smelt the earth made ready for the seed you are never again going to be fully happy about the cities and towns that man carries like a crippling weight upon his back.
{Gwyn Thomas}

If one way be better than another that you may be sure is Nature's way.
{Aristotle, Nichomachean Ethics}

A wee child toddling in a wonder world....I prefer to their dogma my excursions into the natural gardens where the voice of the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of bird, the rippling of mighty waters and the sweet breathing of flowers. If this is Paganism then at present at least, I am a Pagan.

One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.

You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
{St. Bernard}

And this our life exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
{William Shakespeare, As You Like It, 1599}

Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.

{John Burroughs}

Nature is the art of God.
{Thomas Browne, Religio Medici, 1635}

And every common bush afire with God.

{Thomas Jefferson}

Maybe nature is fundamentally ugly chaotic and complicated. But of it's like that then I want out.
{Steven Weinberg}

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter, to be thrilled by the stars at night to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring.....these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
