Nature Quotes A-Z by Author|
Take me as an example. I happen to have
a talent for allocating capital. But my
ability to use that talent is completely
dependent on the society I was born into.
If I'd been born into a tribe of hunters,
this talent of mine would be pretty worthless.
I can't run very fast. I'm not particularly
strong. I'd probably end up as some wild
Buffett - Stock

Enjoy the blessing of strength while you
have it and do not bewail it when it is
gone, unless, forsooth, you believe that
youth must lament the loss of infancy, or
early manhood the passing of youth. Life's
race-course is fixed; Nature has only a
single path and that path is run but once,
and to each stage of existence has been
allotted its own appropriate quality; so
that the weakness of childhood, the impetuosity
of youth, the seriousness of middle life,
the maturity of old age.. each bears some
of Nature's fruit, which must be garnered
in its own season.
Tullius Cicero - Worry
From the living fountain of instinct flows
everything that is creative; hence the unconscious
is not merely conditioned by history, but
is the very source of the creative impulse.
It is like Nature herself.. prodigiously
conservative, and yet transcending her own
historical conditions in her acts of creation.
Jung - History
Security is mostly a superstition. It does
not exist in nature, nor do the children
of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding
danger is no safer in the long run than
outright exposure. Life is either a daring
adventure, or nothing.
Keller - Courage
I think along the way, as we treat nature
as model and mentor, and not as a nuisance
to be evaded or manipulated, we will certainly
acquire much more reverence for life than
we seem to be showing right now.
Lovins - Life
Just as the savage must wrestle with nature
to satisfy his wants, to maintain and reproduce
life, so must civilised man, and he must
do so in all social formations and under
all possible modes of production.
Marx - People
Musicians must make music, artists must
paint, poets must write if they are to be
ultimately at peace with themselves. What
human beings can be, they must be. They
must be true to their own nature.
Maslow - People
world has entered a new era, evolving from an industrial into a knowledge-based
society, and into a society that wants to live in harmony with nature.
Mori - Real
Estate - Society
Mathematics would certainly have not come
into existence if one had known from the
beginning that there was in nature no exactly
straight line, no actual circle, no absolute
Nietzsche - Mathematics
Once you learn to discern the voice of Mother
Culture humming in the background, telling
her story over and over again to the people
of your culture, you'll never stop being
conscious of it. Wherever you go for the
rest of your life, you'll be tempted to
say to the people around you, 'How can you
listen to this stuff and not recognize it
for what it is?
Quinn - Learning
Upwards of two hundred species.. mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety..
are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying
capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These
species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence.. thanks
to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace.
I hope it will not be too long before the technologies that support our population
explosion begin to be perceived as no less hazardous to the future of life on
this planet than the endless production of radioactive wastes.

We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless pit..
and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imagine how the world could survive
another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing anything about it. It's
a problem our children will have to solve, or their children.
Quinn - Nature
Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done..
almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing.
The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world.
And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to
stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.
Quinn - Nature
The mistake made by all previous systems
of ethics has been the failure to recognize
that life as such is the mysterious value
with which they have to deal. All spiritual
life meets us within natural life. Reverence
for life, therefore, is applied to natural
life and spiritual life alike. In the parable
of Jesus, the shepherd saves not merely
the soul of the lost sheep but the whole
animal. The stronger the reverence for natural
life, the stronger grows also that for spiritual
Schweitzer - Spiritual
Profound love demands a deep conception
and out of this develops reverence for the
mystery of life. It brings us close to all
beings, to the poorest and smallest as well
as all others.
Schweitzer - Mystery
Compassion, in which all ethics must take
root, can only attain its full breadth and
depth if it embraces all living creatures
and does not limit itself to mankind.
Schweitzer - Life
The great fault of all ethics hitherto has
been that they believed themselves to have
to deal only with the relations of man to
man. In reality, however, the question is
what is his attitude to the world and all
life that comes within his reach.
Schweitzer - Life
The Indian stands free and unconstrained
in Nature, is her inhabitant and not her
guest, and wears her easily and gracefully.
But the civilized man has the habits of
the house. His house is a prison.
David Thoreau - Nature
Conscious business.. business that is conscious
of inner and outer worlds.. would therefore
be business that takes into account body,
mind, and spirit in self, culture, and nature.
Put differently, conscious business would
be mindful of the way that the spectrum
of consciousness operates in the Big Three
worlds of self and culture and nature.
