“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
Henry David Thoreau

You are welcome.

You are welcome, Charles!
Great quotations as always. Thank you Jennie for remembering, and have a beautiful weekend! Sorry for the delay. I dont know why, but last week it seems i lost some hours somewhere. 😉 Michael
Thank you, Michael! My last two week have been filled with children and grandchildren. Like you, I have definitely lost hours somewhere. 🙂
🙂 But you lost for a very good thing.
I’ve always loved that Muir quote, Jennie. All of these are wonderful. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday weekend. Hugs!
Thank you, Teagan. Muir and Teddy Roosevelt started the National Parks. Big wow! I am just starting to catch up on blogs after a wonderful, long visit from our daughter and grandchildren. Can’t wait to read the Delta Queen episodes! Happy weekend to you. 😍
Love these, Jennie and Charles! ❤ Sharing again…
Thank you, Bette!
I didn’t know Roosevelt and Muir started the National Parks…great quotes 🙂 x
Thank you, Carol. PBS did a great series on the National Parks. 🙂
Muir had it figured out! I try to spend as much time as I can back in the bush by myself. Its a bridge to another dimension!
He really did. The older I get the more I seem to appreciate and understand our big beautiful world landscape.
me too Jennie!
Love these quotes..
