"Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage
as the trees which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring."
- William Alexander
"The color of springtime is in the flowers, 
the color of winter is in the imagination." 
- Terri Guillemets



"Nothing is more beautiful
than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise."
- George Washington Carver


"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel
the bone structure of the landscape -
the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show."
- Andrew Wyeth


"Remember when old December's darkness
is ll about you, that the world is really
in every minutest point as full of life as in
the most joyous morning you ever lived through.."
- William James


"Reading about nature is fine,
but if a person walks in the woods
and listens carefully, he can learn more
than what is in books..."
- George Washington Carver

wind braces us up, snow is exhilirating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather."

deep down withing its heart."

was attracted to the changes
in the stars and planets in the sky."

which vanish with the warmth."

satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books."

before a million universes."
