A-Z - nature

i've always loved nature. it makes me feel refreshed when i'm there. and it's always hard to come back to civilization. living in a city like Phoenix, AZ, it's hard to get to nature. that's part of the reason we're moving to Montana. much easier to get to nature.

Man's heart away from nature becomes hard.  ~Standing Bear

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

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.  ~Charles A. Lindbergh, Life, 22 December 1967
The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man. ~Author Unknown

To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.  ~Jane Austen
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. ~Lao Tzu

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

Good luck with your move, Michelle.

I love nature, spending time outdoors is so necessary, these days we are indoors so much - we forget there's a world outside waiting for us.

Lovely quotes. I like walking barefoot in the shady grass.

Montana? Wow, that is quite a change in climate.

Best of luck with the move. This sure is the time to move from Phoenix, and to Montana. Might want to reverse that in December.
Love the quotes.

Good luck with your move. It sounds like a big change!
