The Beauty of Nature

Here is a compilation of some photos I have taken over the years when the magic of natures beauty has literally taken my breath away, couples with wonderful quotes I have found.
I always wonder how there can be so much hurt and pain in the world, when we are surrounded by such spectacular beauty. Is it there to make those pains and troubles easier? So that we can look out of our windows, or go for a walk on a hard day, and be comforted, be reassured that there is beauty in the world, and that no matter what happens, Nature will always be providing a jaw-dropping stage upon which we perform the play that is life. 

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, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  Look at the flowers - for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.  ~Osho

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.  ~Kahlil Gibran

The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats


There is always Music amongst the trees in the Garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.  ~Minnie Aumonier

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.” - Alice Walker


And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.  ~William Shakespeare

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.  ~Albert Einstein

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.  ~Galileo

If one way be better than another, 
that you may be sure is Nature's way. 
~ Aristotle - Nichomachean Ethics ~

Fieldes have eies and woods have eares. 
~ John Heywood, 1565 ~

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth 
are never alone or weary of life. 
~ Rachel Carson ~

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, 
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, 
if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, 
rejoice, for your soul is alive. 
~ Eleonora Duse ~

“When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator”

 Mahatma Gandhi 


Never forget to marvel at the power, beauty and wonder of Nature. 

Have a magical day.
