Nature Quotes: We live in an age of seemingly limitless information. The weekday edition of any magazine contains more information than the average person was exposed to during an entire lifetime in ancient days. Over the years, I have found that spending time alone in natural surroundings connects us to the larger universe around us and restores our spirit in this hurried age.
Inspiring Nature Quotes
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lau Tzu
After a busy week of all your engagements, the simple act of sitting in a wooden park and listening to the wind move through the leaves will you with a sense of quite and peace. Your priorities will become clearer, your obligations seem less pressing and your mind grow still. Communing with nature is also an excellent way to unlock your creativity and generate new ideas.
The earth is what we have all in common. Newton formulated the laws of gravity while relaxing under an apple tree. Likewise Swiss designer George de Mestral developed Velcro after examining the burdock burrs that clung to his dog while he hiked in the mountains. Natural surroundings serve to stifle the endless chatter that fills our minds so that our true brilliance can be liberated.We never notice the beauty because we are too busy creating it. Get lost in nature and you will find yourself. And while you spend time enjoying nature, observe your surroundings with concentration. Study the complexity of a flower of the way the current moves in sparkling stream. Take your shoes off and feel the grass under your feet give silent thanks that you have the privilege of enjoying these special gifts of nature. Many people do not. As Mahatma Gandhi observed, “When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator”.
