"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life." ―Rachel Carson

"If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature's way." ―Aristotle

" ...recognize and respect Earth’s beautiful systems of balance, between the presence of animals on land, the fish in the sea, birds in the air, mankind, water, air, and land. Most importantly there must always be awareness of the actions by people that can disturb this precious balance." ― Margaret Mead

“When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.” ― John Muir

"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
