Yesterday, Earth Day was celebrated and this year’s campaign is to End Plastic Pollution. In this post, I share my ten favorite quotes about the earth to inspire you in the earth day celebration.
I. “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
II. “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
III. The earth laughs in flowers.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
IV. The fairest thing in nature, a flower, still has its roots in earth and manure.
― D. H. Lawrence
V. Pick a flower on Earth and you move the farthest star.
― Paul Dirac
VI. My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.
VII. “And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”
― Kahlil Gibran
VIII. “Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work. The lesson one learns from yachting or planting is the manners of Nature; patience with the delays of wind and sun, delays of the seasons, bad weather, excess or lack of water.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
IX. “The world is not to be put in order. The world is order, incarnate. It is for us to put ourselves in unison with this order.”
– Henry Miller
X. “ It’s very, very dangerous to lose contact with living nature.”
