Wild Words for a Winter Day

At first a small line of inconceivable splendour emerged on the horizon, above which, quickly expanding, the sun appeared in all of his glory, unveiling the whole face of nature, vivifying every colour of the landscape, and sprinkling the dewy earth with glittering light.
Ann Radcliffe

I go to Nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more.
John Burroughs

Take care of the land, and it will take care of you. Take what you need from the land, but need what you take.
Aboriginal Law

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
Rachel Carson

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you… while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
John Muir

The woods were made for the hunter of dreams, the brooks for the fishers of song. To the hunters who hunt for gunless game, the stream and the woods belong.
Sam Walter Foss
