Our Natural World - An Earth Day Celebration

"Every body needs beauty as well as bread,
Places to play in and pray in,
Where nature may heal and
Give strength to body and soul alike."
- John Muir

"If we can somehow retain places where we
can always sense the mystery of the unknown,
our lives will be richer."
- Sigurd F. Olson

"All good things are wild and free."
- Henry David Thoreau

"To love and be loved is to
feel the sun from both sides."
- David Viscott

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of
wonder, he needs the companionship of at
least one adult who can share it,
rediscovering the joy, excitement and mystery
of the world we live in."
- Rachel Carson

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

"Where else can the limitless landscape
match the greatest reach of the human spirit?"
- T.A. Barron

"So we shall come and look at the world with new eyes."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as
possible this life that has been bestowed upon us;
to live in such a way, that we may be proud of ourselves;
to act in such a way that some part of us lives on."
- Oswald Spengler

"Come forth into the light of things.
Let nature be your wisdom."
- William Wordsworth

On this day I pray:

...that you will spend more time outdoors.
...that you will observe nature more closely.
...that you will be inspired by the beauty of our natural world.
...that you will use that inspiration to make a positive change in your own personal way.
...and that every night you will go to sleep knowing you left the world a better place than the day before.


  1. That was such an inspiring post! I like the photos and they're really heartwarming. If more people are going to see the beauty of our world, maybe more people are going to make efforts in keeping its beauty.

  2. Thank you so much.

    A joint effort is exactly what this world needs.

    And you have an inspiring site of your own. :)
