Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
e. e. cummings
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind.
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.
The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.
Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.
The good man is the friend of all living things.
Fishes live in the sea, as men do a-land the great ones eat up the little ones.
To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Earth laughs in flowers.
