A.A. Milne
If you were a bird, and lived on high,You'd lean on the wind when the wind came by,You'd say to the wind when it took you away:That's where I wanted to go today!
A.A. Milne
If you were a cloud, and sailed up there,You'd sail on the water as blue as air.And you'd see me here in the fields and say:Doesn't the sky look green today?
A.C. Grayling
Do not regret having lived, but while yet living live in a way that allows you to think that you were not born in vain.And do not regret that you must die: it is what all who are wise must Wish, to have life end at its proper time.For nature puts a limit to living as to everything else, And we are the sons and daughters of nature, and for us therefore the sleep of nature is nature's final kindness
A.D. Aliwat
An important part of being an alpha is to be hateful and calculating, but to appear just inconsiderate. You need to put in effort to get what you want, but people will push back if they think you're doing something maliciously. If they believe you just don't know any better, are just kind of a selfish dick and they got in the way of that, rather than thinking they were a target, then you can get away with a lot more, and from then on they either avoid you or accept you as a force of nature.
A.D. Posey
Creativity is nature. Nature is creativity.
A.E. Samaan
If God were mortal and had but one life to give, he would have been more careful about how he created the world.
A.L. Davroe
What you humans need to do is find beauty in the fact that something is naturally the way it is. Perhaps then you wouldn't be so destructive. [Meems says to Ellani]

When you look at nature, you see a hidden mystery that gives a special flavor to the photograph.
Abby Geni
We may never know what another person is thinking--never truly get into anyone else's head--but photography brings us as close as anything can. When the members of an audience at an art gallery look at a picture, they can step for a moment inside the mind of the artist. Like telepathy. Like time travel. At some future date, when people gaze at my photographs of the islands, they will see what I saw. They will stand where I stood, on this granite, surrounded by this ocean. Perhaps they will even feel some of the elation I have experienced here.
Abdolkarim Soroush
We coin concepts and we use them to analyse and explain nature and society. But we seem to forget, midway, that these concepts are our own constructs and start equating them with reality.
Abdur-Rehman Qadeer
People Ignore, People Hurt, People Confuse. But, Nature Talks, Nature Heals, Nature Answers.

And like tea dissolving in hot water, the sun dissolved in the sky… creating a velvet horizon, announcing for the stars' night dance with the moon, the awaited joy for the wounded souls. -- From Bali

Natural Sciences are all about fascinating causality.
Abhijit Naskar
Biology is run by intricate cellular mechanisms. Cellular mechanisms are run by Nature. Thus, the more we attempt to understand Nature, the more we get closer to our existential properties.
Abhijit Naskar
Inside a jihadi brain, the neuropsychological elements of aggression and rage run rampant, due to socio-political conditions. These overwhelming mental elements of young souls, when attached to the sacred texts of the Quran, by the authoritarian groups of fundamentalists, become weapons of mass destruction in the pursuit of the exclusive supremacy of one religion over the others.
Abhijit Naskar
There is nothing ideal in Nature, because it was not created by some sort of ideal Almighty Being with perfect peerless craftsmanship. Nature as it is, has evolved through millions of years out of the biological drive for survival.

Homosexuality is nature's way of keeping the population in check.
Abhijit Naskar
every single explanation that your brain concocts about a certain phenomenon on earth, is merely a virtual hunch of the neurons. Now, when your brain has access to more information, the resulting hunch would be more accurate, than another person who has less access.
Abhijit Naskar
Diversity is Nature's stronghold, yet that very diversity has become a curse for an entire species, which is supposedly the most advanced one on its planet.
Abhijit Naskar
We biologists often use the phrase Mother Nature to refer to the entire system of Nature that we see around us, but it is not really an entity, and it does not have any real concern for any of its living creatures
Abhijit Naskar
There is a natural magic in the feeling of love that has been nourished by Mother Nature through millions of years. It can make you reach the zenith of your true potential. It can awaken your mind towards your deepest powers, and make you endowed with tools of greatness that you can never access in an ordinary state of mind.
Abhijit Naskar
One good, compassionate and caring Self is a thousand times greater than all the fanciful, imaginary supernatural entities in the world.
Abhijit Naskar
When you don't have explanation for a certain phenomenon, as a real human, you should suspend judgement, instead of concocting supernatural explanations out of ignorance and primordial fanaticism.
Abhijit Naskar
God is nature's anti-dote to misery.

Love and Divinity are both gifts from Nature, fraught with the highest bliss.

When Mother Nature speaks, even the Gods hold silence.

At that very first kiss of my life I felt something melt inside me that hurt in an exquisite way. All my longings, all my dreams and sweet anguish, all the secrets that slept deep within my limbic brain came awake. I felt billions of Beach Boys playing their sweet melody inside my heart in perfect harmony with the universe.

It is better to be foolish than a dilettante.
Abhijit Naskar
It's in the nature of the humans and the entire animal kingdom to return blow for blow, cheating for cheating, lie for lie, to hit back with all our might. But what makes us true humans is the power to not hit back.
Abhijit Naskar
Every single phenomenon in the world, has a physical explanation underneath it. Finding the explanation depends on how far you are willing to go.
Abhijit Naskar
Our present intricate humanly consciousness evolved after a long journey of struggle. And the beauty of natural selection is that our struggle against nature made us worthy of being rewarded with the 3 lbs. lump of highly advanced biological computer by our Mother Nature herself.
Abhijit Naskar
Faith is a natural evolutionary trait of the human mind, selected by Mother Nature as an internal coping-mechanism.

People often reveal their innermost selves in the most innocent of situations.
Abraham Grace Merritt
We strike our blow, even as Pierre has said. We strike at the coppice that you so desire. We strike there because it is the very heart of the forest. There the secret life of the forest runs at full tide. We know - and you know! Something that, destroyed, will take the heart out of the forest - will make it know us for its masters.(Women Of The Woods)
Abraham Lincoln
All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind.
Adalbert Stifter
Everything that God sends us is beautiful, even though we may not understand it - and we only need to give it some proper thought to see that what God gives is just sheer happiness; the suffering is what we add to it.
Adam Nicolson
The place has entered me...it has coloured my life like a stain.
Adam Smith
Resentment seems to have been given us by nature for a defense, and for a defense only! It is the safeguard of justice and the security of innocence.
Adam Smith
To feel much for others and little for ourselves to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature.
Adam Weishaupt
It was the full conviction of this, and of what could be done, if every man were placed in the office for which he was fitted by nature and a proper education, which first suggested to me the plan of Illumination.
Adam Weishaupt
And of all illumination which human reason can give, none is comparable to the discovery of what we are, our nature, our obligations, what happiness we are capable of, and what are the means of attaining it.
Adam Weishaupt
When man lives under government, he is fallen, his worth is gone, and his nature tarnished.
Adelheid Manefeldt
The endless ocean was his sole companion , and on some deeply sentimental level, it seemed sufficient. Almost apt. He aligned himself with Thoreau and Tolstoy, he felt like their peers. The kinship with nature devoted humans to a mythical state, a heightened persona beyond the reach of mere mortals. At least that was what he told himself on the lonely nights when insomnia played on his fears and the howling wind pierced through his soul.
Adi Alsaid
No sky Leila had seen before could compare to the beauty she was seeing above her. It didn't feel like some accident of nature but rather something that was purposefully unleashed on the world.
Adlai E. Stevenson
Nature is neutral.
Adlai E. Stevenson
Nature is indifferent to the survival of the human species, including Americans.
Adolf Hitler
As in everything, nature is the best instructor.
Adolf Hitler
When people attempt to rebel against the iron logic of Nature, they come into conflict with the very same principles to which they owe their existence as human beings. Their actions against Nature must lead to their own downfall.
Adolf Hitler
It's possible to satisfy the needs of the inner life by an intimate communion with nature, or by knowledge of the past.
Adolf Loos
Be truthful, nature only sides with truth.
Adriaan Kortlandt
Once I saw a chimpanzee gaze at a particularly beautiful sunset for a full 15 minutes, watching the changing colors [and then] retire to the forest without picking a pawpaw for supper.
Aeschylus
Married love between man and woman is bigger than oaths guarded by right of nature.
Ahmad Ardalan
I know a feeling like that only comes once in a lifetime, and I think you should follow your heart's desires. I believe in love, and I know love conquers all.
Akira Kurosawa
People today have forgotten they're really just a part of nature. Yet, they destroy the nature on which our lives depend. They always think they can make something better. Especially scientists. They may be smart, but most don't understand the heart of nature. They only invent things that, in the end, make people unhappy. Yet they're so proud of their inventions. What's worse, most people are, too. They view them as if they were miracles. They worship them. They don't know it, but they're losing nature. They don't see that they're going to perish. The most important things for human beings are clean air and clean water.
Akshay Vasu
You have the touch of nature you know, where she touches everything that is dead and they spring back into life again. I realised that the day you touched me for the first time. I felt I was standing somewhere I had never been before and all of a sudden life started pouring over me like a rain and drenching me with it. I had never felt that alive before.
Al Gore
Airplane travel is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo.
Alain de Botton
We are humiliated by what is powerful and mean, but awed by what is powerful and noble.
Alan Booth
The entire area - some 300 square kilometers - is sacred. There are shrines and temples dotted about the slopes, but they merely confirm the sanctity of the land. It is not in the shrines and temples that the gods live, but in the mountains themselves. [about the Three Holy Mountains of Dewa - Haguro, Gassam, and Yodono]
Alan Bradley
Think of the billions of trillions of snowflakes, and the billions of trillions of hydrogen and oxygen molecules in every single one of them. It makes you wonder, doesn't it, who wrote the laws for the wind and the rain, the snow and the dew? I've tried to work it out, but it makes my head spin.
Alan Hovhaness
I've always regarded nature as the clothing of God.
Alan Kay
The protean nature of the computer is such that it can act like a machine or like a language to be shaped and exploited.
Alan King
Marriage is nature's way of keeping us from fighting with strangers.
Alan Lee
I spend as much time as I can sketching from nature, Dartmoor contains such a rich variety of landscape, as many boulders, foaming rivers and twisted trees as my heart could ever desire. . . . When I look into a river, I feel I could spend a whole lifetime just painting that river.
Alan Lee
I keep drawing the trees, the rocks, the river, I'm still learning how to see them; I'm still discovering how to render their forms. I will spend a lifetime doing that. Maybe someday I'll get it right.
Alan W. Watts
When it comes down to it, government is simply an abandonment of responsibility on the assumption that there are people, other than ourselves, who really know how to manage things. But the government, run ostensibly for the good of the people, becomes a self-serving corporation. To keep things under control it proliferates laws of ever-increasing complexity and unintelligibility, and hinders productive work by demanding so much accounting on paper that the record of what has been done becomes more important than what has actually been done. The Taoist moral is that people who mistrust themselves and one another are doomed.
Alan W. Watts
Naturally, for a person who finds his identity in something other than his full organism is less than half a man. He is cut off from complete participation in nature. Instead of being a body, he 'has' a body. Instead of living and loving he 'has' instincts for survival and copulation.
Alan W. Watts
We might 'conquer' nature if we could first, or at the same time, conquer our own nature, though we do not see that human nature and 'outside' nature are all of a piece.
Alan W. Watts
When you look at the clouds they are not symmetrical. They do not form fours and they do not come along in cubes, but you know at once that they are not a mess. [...] They are wiggly but in a way, orderly, although it is difficult for us to describe that kind of order. Now, take a look at yourselves. You are all wiggly. [...] We are just like clouds, rocks and stars. Look at the way the stars are arranged. Do you criticize the way the stars are arranged?
Alan Watts
In other words, a person who is fanatic in matters of religion, and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe, becomes a person who has no faith at all.
Alanis Morissette
When I'm off the road, my husband and I recharge our batteries. It's a day of deep rest and connection with the spiritual, and that can be anything - going for a walk in nature, being in silence, burning incense.
Alanis Obomsawin
When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can't eat money.
Albert Camus
Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.
Albert Camus
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
Albert Camus
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Albert Camus
From the olive-strewn forum, one could see the village down below. Not a sound came from it; wisps of smoke rose in the limpid air. The sea also lay silent, as if breathless beneath the unending shower of cold, glittering light. From the Chenoua, a distant cock crow alone sang the fragile glory of the day. Across the ruins, as far as one could see, there were nothing but pitted stones and absinthe plants, trees and perfect columns in the transparence of the crystal air. It was as if the morning stood still, as if the sun had stopped for an immeasurable moment. In this light and silence, years of night and fury melted slowly away. I listened to an almost forgotten sound within myself, as if my heart had long been stopped and was now gently beginning to beat again.
Albert Camus
Gula and Cali lie on their sides, their tiny adder-mouths showing the pink of their palates, their bodies throbbing with lustful and obscene dreams. The sky releases its burden of sun and color. Eyes closed, Catherine takes the long fall that carries her deep into herself, down where some animal stirs gently, breathing like a god.
Albert Einstein
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Albert Einstein
Occurrences in this domain are beyond the reach of exact prediction because of the variety of factors in operation, not because of any lack of order in nature.
Albert Einstein
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Albert Einstein
Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it's beauty.
Albert Einstein
It stands to the everlasting credit of science that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man's insecurity before himself and before nature.
Albert Einstein
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
Albert Einstein
… there are no arbitrary constants ... nature is so constituted that it is possible logically to lay down such strongly determined laws that within these laws only rationally determined constants occur (not constants, therefore, whose numerical value could be changed without destroying the theory).
Albert Einstein
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.
Albert Einstein
We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.
Albert Hofmann
I was completely astonished by the beauty of nature. Our eyes see just a small fraction of the light in the world. It is a trick to make a colored world, which does not exist outside of human beings.
Albert Hofmann
It's very, very dangerous to lose contact with living nature.
Albert J. Nock
Assuming that man has a distinct spiritual nature, a soul, why should it be thought unnatural that under appropriate conditions of maladjustment, his soul might die before his body does or that his soul might die without his knowing it?
Albert Schweitzer
Man has lost the capacity to foresee and to forestall. He will end by destroying the earth.
Alberto Caeiro
A row of trees far away, there on the hillside.But what is it, a row of trees? It's just trees.Row and the plural trees aren't things, they're names.

Between what i see in a field and what I see in another fieldThere passes for a moment the figure of a man.His steps go with him in the same reality,But I look at him and them, and they're two things:The man goes walking with his ideas, false and foreign,And his steps go with the ancient system that makes legs walk.I see him from a distance without any opinion at all.How perfect that he is in him what he is

And since today's all there is for now, that's everything.Who knows if I'll be dead the day after tomorrow?If I'm dead the day after tomorrow, the thunderstorm day after tomorrowWill be another thunderstorm than if I hadn't died.Of course I know thunderstorms don't fall because I see them,But if I weren't in the world,The world would be different
Alberto Caeiro
A stagecoach passed by on the road and went on;And the road didn't become more beautiful or even more ugly.That's human action on the outside world.We take nothing away and we put nothing back, we pass by and we forget;And the sun is always punctual every day.(5/7/14)

Now I sense the perfume of flowers like seeing a new thing.I know they smell just as well as I know I existed.They're things known from the outside.But now I know with my breathing from the back of my head.

I think about this, not like someone thinking, but like someone breathing,And I look at flowers and I smile...I don't know if they understand meOr if I understand them,But I know the truth is in them and in meAnd in our common divinityOf letting ourselves go and live on the EarthAnd carrying us in our arms through the contented SeasonsAnd letting the wind sing us to sleepAnd not have dreams in our sleep.

I saw that there is no Nature,That Nature doesn't exist,That there are hills, valleys, plains,That there are trees, flowers, weeds,That there are rivers and stones,But there is not a whole these belong to,That a real and true wholenessIs a sickness of our ideas.

If I knew I was going to die tomorrow,And Spring came the day after tomorrow,I would die peacefully, because it came the day after tomorrow.If that's its time, when else should it come?I like it that everything is real and everything is right;And I like that it would be like this even if I didn't like it.And so, if I die now, I die peacefullyBecause everything is real and everything is right.

I don't have a philosophy: I have senses...If I talk about Nature, it's not because I know what it is,But because I love it, and that's why I love it,Because when you love you never know what you love,Or why you love, or what love is.Loving is eternal innocence,And the only innocence is not thinking.

What does this think about that?Nothing thinks about anything.Does the earth have consciousness of its stones and plants?If it did, it would be people. . .Why am I worrying about this?If I think about these things,I'll stop seeing trees and plantsAnd stop seeing the EarthFor only seeing my thoughts...I'll get unhappy and stay in the dark.And so, without thinking, I have the Earth and the Sky.

Man always kills the thing he loves, and so we the pioneers have killed our wilderness. Some say we had to. Be that as it may, I am glad I shall never be young without wild country to be young in. Of what avail are forty freedoms without a blank spot on the map?
Aldo Leopold
I am glad I will not be young in a future without wilderness.
Aldo Leopold
To those devoid of imagination a blank place on the map is a useless waste; to others, the most valuable part.
Aldo Leopold
There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.
Aldo Leopold
No matter how intently one studies the hundred little dramas of the woods and meadows, one can never learn all the salient facts about any one of them.
Aldo Leopold
This whole effort to rebuild and stabilize a countryside is not without its disappointments and mistakes... What matter though these temporary growing pains when one can cast his eye upon the hills and see hard-boiled farmers who have spent their lives destroying land now carrying water by hand to their new plantations
Aldo Leopold
I am convinced that most Americans of the new generation have no idea what a decent forest looks like. The only way to tell them is to show them.
Aldo Leopold
In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries no man can ignore all of them.
Aldo Leopold
One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.
Aldo Leopold
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.
Aldo Leopold
Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language.
Aldo Leopold
We shall never achieve harmony with the land, anymore than we shall achieve absolute justice or liberty for people. In these higher aspirations the important thing is not to achieve but to strive.
Aldous Huxley
Nature is powerless to put asunder.
Aldous Huxley
My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.
Aldous Huxley
Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead.
Aldous Huxley
Por su misma naturaleza, cada espíritu con una encarnación está condenado a padecer y gozar en la soledad.
Aleister Crowley
Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales.
Aleister Crowley
Lisa was thinking, as she climbed the apparently unending staircase, the she had taken pretty long odds. She had not hesitated to buck the Tiger, Life. Simon Iff had warned her that she was acting on impulse. But--on the top of that--he had merely urged her to be true to it. She swore once more that she would stick to her guns. The black mood fell from her. She turned and looked upon the sea, now far below. The sun, a hollow orb of molten glory, hung quivering in the mist of the Mediterranean; and Lisa entered for a moment into a perfect peace of spirit. She became once with Nature, instead of a being eternally at war with it.
Aleksandra Layland
The trees were his chapel and the hillsides his cathedral.
Aleksandra Layland
There is something to be said about the vastness of the earth, as well as the vastness of the heavens, in reminding us how small we are and how great God's creation is.
Alex Grey
To bare our souls is all we ask, to give all we have to life and the beings surrounding us. Here the nature spirits are intense and we appreciate them, make offerings to them - these nature spirits who call us here - sealing our fate with each other, celebrating our love.
Alex Noble
If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.
Alex Trebek
If you can't be in awe of Mother Nature, there's something wrong with you.
Alex Z. Moores
The way the snowflakes float like tiny feathers
Alexander Hamilton
There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism.
Alexander Hamilton
The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself and can never be erased.
Alexander Hamilton
In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will.
Alexander McQueen
There is no better designer than nature.
Alexander Pope
Nature and nature's laws lay hid in the night. God said, Let Newton be! and all was light!
Alexander Pope
A God without dominion, providence, and final causes, is nothing else but fate and nature.
Alexander Pope
Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:God said, Let Newton be! and all was light.
Alexander Pope
Extremes in nature equal ends produce In man they join to some mysterious use.
Alexander Pope
Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Alexander Pope
True wit is nature to advantage dressed;What oft was thought, but ne'er so well expressed.
Alexander Pope
All are but parts of one stupendous whole, Whose body Nature is, and God the soul.
Alexander Pope
The way of the Creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the Great Harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.
Alexander Pope
The learned is happy, nature to explore The fool is happy, that he knows no more.
Alexander Pope
All nature is but art unknown to thee.
Alexander Pope
Slave to no sect, who takes no private road, But looks through Nature up to Nature's God.
Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
dragonflies circled me, the sun knifing off the brilliant blues and yellows of their bodies.
Alfred Adler
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
Alfred Austin
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
Alfred Austin
There is no gardening without humility. Nature is constantly sending even its oldest scholars to the bottom of the class for some egregious blunder.
Alfred Korzybski
An individual cannot be considered entirely sane if he is wholly ignorant of scientific method and structure of nature and so retains primitive semantic reactions.
Alfred Korzybski
An individual cannot be considered entirely sane of he is wholly ignorant of scientific method and structure of nature and so retains primitive semantic reactions.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
And out of darkness came the hands that reach thro' nature, moulding men.
