The silence of nature is very real

"I love not Man the less, but Nature more."

Of all the plants that cover the earth and lie like a fringe of hair upon the body of our grandmother, try to obtain knowledge that you may be strengthened in life. - Winnebago (Native American) (on nature) You can drive out nature with a pitchfork but she keeps on coming back. Horace (65-8 BC)
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. Lord Byron In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous. Aristotle
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. George Washington Carver Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. Ralph Waldo Emerson "Not just beautiful, though—the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me." —Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
"'Is the spring coming?' he said. 'What is it like?' ... "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter." ― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring>
'It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth.'" —Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret GardenThe smaller the creature, the bolder its spirit." ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem "But especially he loved to run in the dim twilight of the summer midnights, listening to the subdued and sleepy murmurs of the forest, reading signs and sounds as a man may read a book, and seeking for the mysterious something that called—called, waking or sleeping, at all times, for him to come." —Jack London, The Call of the Wild

Wilderness

I am glad I will not be young in a future without wilderness." ― Aldo Leopold. "These people have learned not from books, but in the fields, in the wood, on the river bank. Their teachers have been the birds themselves, when they sang to them, the sun when it left a glow of crimson behind it at setting, the very trees, and wild herbs." ―Anton Chekhov, "A Day in the Country"

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep Sea, and music in its roar: I love not Man the less, but Nature more." —Lord Byron, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" . "Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." —John Muir, Our National Parks

Nature's beauty

"I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling." —Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

"You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things." ― Mary Oliver

Onrush of scenery

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy." ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness." ― John Muir The mountains are calling and I must go." ― John Muir
"Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us." ― Brian Jacques, Taggerung "There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more" ― George Gordon Byron
"Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay." ― Robert FrostBesonderé

"Should you shield the canyons..?

"Every creature was designed to serve a purpose. Learn from animals for they are there to teach you the way of life. There is a wealth of knowledge that is openly accessible in nature. Our ancestors knew this and embraced the natural cures found in the bosoms of the earth. Their classroom was nature. They studied the lessons to be learned from animals. Much of human behavior can be explained by watching the wild beasts around us. They are constantly teaching us things about ourselves and the way of the universe, but most people are too blind to watch and listen." ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." ― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

"I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it." ― William Shakespeare.

"...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?" ― Vincent van Gogh
