In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, we thought a few wonderful quotes about our relationship with nature were appropriate. We wish you a wonderful day. Be sure to get outside and enjoy some piece of the beauty that is our planet.

“I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.” ~Elwyn Brooks White, Essays of E.B. White, 1977

“Till now man has been up against Nature; from now on he will be up against his own nature.” ~Dennis Gabor, Inventing the Future, 1963

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” ~Chief Seattle, 1855

“You can’t be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.” ~Hal Borland, Sundial of the Seasons, 1964

“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
