“Art is contemplation.  It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into

nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.”

– Auguste Rodin

“God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone,

but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars.” 

~Martin Luther

 

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe,

a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself,

his thoughts and feelings, 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 circles of compassion to embrace all living

creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

~ quotation by Albert Einstein

Tree Canopy

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a
green thing that stands in the way.  Some see Nature all ridicule and
deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all.  But to the eyes of the
man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.
–  William Blake, 1799, The Letters
