The beauty and mystique of Nature should be cherished, appreciated, and nurtured. Mountains, rivers, forests, oceans, flora and fauna…are all a sight to behold and heal. Let’s begin this New Year savoring the glory of Mother Nature.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe,
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself,
his thoughts and feeling 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 circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.                     -Albert Einstein

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.                        -Dale Carnegie

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

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.                                          -Helen Keller

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

Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.                         -Rabindranath Tagore

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.                                   -Lao Tzu

No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place.                                         -Zen proverb
