Wise Words Wednesday: Some favorite nature quotes by John Muir

the fellas

John Muir was American’s most famous naturalist and conservationist. Some of his quotes are among the favorite nature quotes of all time.

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.  

Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done  and suffered by her creatures.  All scars she heals, whether  in rocks or water or sky or hearts.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it  hitched to everything else in the Universe.

You can find many more beautiful words on the Sierra Club John Muir Exhibit website. Muir was the first president of the Sierra Club. You can also celebrate John Muir Day on April 21st. A great way to honor Muir’s birthday is watching Ken Burns’ amazing documentary The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.
