We like to be out in nature so much because it has no opinion on us.

Friedrich Nietzsche

The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles?

John Adams

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creatures through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston

The nature of how we are as human beings is that we`re much more interested in being critical rather than praising something.

Ellie Goulding

Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he`s destroying is this God he`s worshiping.

Hubert Reeves

If the omniscient author of nature knew that the study of his works tends to make men disbelieve his Being or Attributes, he would not have given them so many invitations to study and contemplate Nature.

Robert Boyle

You don`t have any more reason to think you have the true faith than any other believer does. Sure, you can quote chapter and verse - and so can people with a different interpretation of the faith. That`s the nature of chapter and verse; it can be used to support just about any interpretation you can come up with.

Greta Christina

Believers say they can know the truth - the greatest truth of all about the nature of the Universe, namely the source of all existence - simply by sitting quietly and listening to their hearts... and then accuse atheists of being arrogant. And this attitude isn`t just arrogant towards atheists. It`s arrogant towards people of other religions who have sat just as quietly, listened to their hearts with just as much sincerity, and come to completely opposite conclusions about God and the soul and the Universe.

Greta Christina

No matter how unlikely an event is, it doesn`t mean that a supernatural explanation would be more likely, especially when you consider the fact that in order for us to accept such an explanation, we have to agree that scientific models of nature that have consistently and accurately explained and predicted many natural events are completely wrong simply because we have witnessed an unlikely event.

Armin Navabi

I`m a lunatic by nature, and lunatics don`t need training - they just are.

Ozzy Osbourne

There can be no eternal life because the very basis of life is its transient and dynamic nature.

Addy Pross

Although Nature needs thousands or millions of years to create a new species, man needs only a few dozen years to destroy one.

Victor B. Scheffer

Nature consults no philosophers.

John Walker

Every one who is seriously engaged in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that the laws of nature manifest the existence of a spirit vastly superior to that of men, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.

Albert Einstein

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.

Coco Chanel
