The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term art, I should call it "the Reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature through the veil of the mist.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Natural gas is hemispheric. I like to call it hemispheric in nature because it is a product that we can find in our neighborhoods. (Dec. 20, 2000)More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

There is not, in my opinion, anything more mysterious in nature than this instinct in animals, which thus rise above reason, and yet fall infinitely short of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great men are true men, the men in whom nature has succeeded. They are not extraordinary -- they are in the true order. It is the other species of men who are not what they ought to be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who asks of life nothing but the improvement of his own nature is less liable than anyone else to miss and waste life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

There are souls that are incurable and lost to the rest of society. Deprive them of one means of folly, they will invent ten thousand others. They will create subtler, wilder methods, methods that are absolutely DESPERATE. Nature herself is fundamentally antisocial, it is only by a usurpation of powers that the organized body of society opposes the natural inclination of humanity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Always observe how ephemeral and worthless human things are. Pass then through this little space of time conformably to nature, and end thy journey in content, just as an olive falls off when it is ripe, blessing nature who produced it, and thanking the tree on which it grew.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

A widespread taste for pornography means that nature is alerting us to some threat of extinction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As a profession advertising is young; as a force it is as old as the world. The first four words ever uttered, Let there be light, constitute its charter. All nature is vibrant with its impulse.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I consider it useless and tedious to represent what exists, because nothing that exists satisfies me. Nature is ugly, and I prefer the monsters of my fancy to what is positively trivial.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love.

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who possess it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It seems to be a law of nature that no man, unless he has some obvious physical deformity, ever is loth to sit for his portrait.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Compare the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing in the nature around us is evil. This needs to be repeated since one of the human ways of talking oneself into inhuman acts is to cite the supposed cruelty of nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When thou art quiet and silent, then art thou as God was before nature and creature; thou art that which God then wats; thou art that whereof he made thy nature and creature: Then thou hearest and seest even with that wherewith God himself saw and heard in thee, before every thine own willing or thine own seeing began.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera -- and himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forbearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that -- being what it is -- it falls so short of in fact and in deed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We trifle when we assign limits to our desires, since nature hath set none.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is by a wise economy of nature that those who suffer without change, and whom no one can help, become uninteresting. Yet so it may happen that those who need sympathy the most often attract it the least.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man masters nature not by force but by understanding. This is why science has succeeded where magic failed: because it has looked for no spell to cast over nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Egotism is the anesthetic given by a kindly nature to relieve the pain of being a damned fool.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Novelists are perhaps the last people in the world to be entrusted with opinions. The nature of a novel is that it has no opinions, only the dialectic of contrary views, some of which, all of which, may be untenable and even silly. A novelist should not be too intelligent either, although he may be permitted to be an intellectual.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is but one law for all, namely that law which governs all law, the law of our Creator, the law of humanity, justice, equity -- the law of nature and of nations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have lived long enough to satisfy both nature and glory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love is a chain of love as nature is a chain of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon--instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
And thus they give the time, that Nature meant for peaceful sleep and meditative snores, to ceaseless din and mindless merriment and waste of shoes and floors.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The control of nature is a phrase conceived in arrogance, born of the Neanderthal age of biology and the convenience of man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whenever man comes up with a better mousetrap, nature immediately comes up with a better mouse.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
