Pondering nature

I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.
-Willa Cather, O Pioneers

Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another.
-Juvenal, Satires

Silently one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
-Longfellow, Evangeline

The whole secret of the study of nature lies in learning how to use one's eyes.
-George Sand
