"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

"God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars." ~Martin Luther

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I've watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! - not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~William Wordsworth, "To a Butterfly"

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

This little boy is all natured out and SO OVER the butterflies.  : )
