Ispwo Mukika Crowfoot Quotation

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.

It is a breath of a buffalo in the winter time.

It is the little shadow that runs across the grass

and loses itself in the sunset.

Wilton Robert Abbott Quotation

Every animal knows more than you do.

Anne Wilson Schaef Quotation

Nature is my greatest teacher. When I take the time to go into nature, it takes me a while to settle down to the rhythm of my surroundings. Initially, what I hear is the rushing of my own heart and the pounding of my brain. It takes me a while to leave my culture behind me and begin to attune to the “harmonious flow of nature”. I make a commitment to take as long as I need to slow down and listen.

Henri Frederic Amiel Quotation

The universe is but a kaleidoscope which turns within the mind of the so-called thinking being, who is himself a curiosity without a cause, an accident conscious of the great accident around him, and who amuses himself with it so long as the phenomenon of his vision lasts.
