An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. If spring came but once a century instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all the hearts to behold the miraculous change.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

Spring slips into even the most hidden places of the countryside and transforms them into mossy-green mansions of delight.
Discovering this idyllic place, we find ourselves filled with a yearning to linger here, where time stands still and beauty overwhelms.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water,or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time.Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

God is the friend of silence. Trees, flowers, grass grow in silence. See the stars, moon, and sun, how they move in silence.
The rich fire of the orange sunset gloriously announces the coming night.

The ocean . . . cold and wild the surf, rushing in to overwhelm the beach, the wind, stinging my cheeks, enveloping me in total freedom.
