“Sometimes the simplest and best use of our will is to drop it all and just walk out from under everything that is covering us, even if only for an hour or so—just walk out from under the webs we’ve spun, the tasks we’ve assumed, the problems we have to solve. They’ll be there when we get back, and maybe some of them will fall apart without our worry to hold them up.”

Anne Frank-Nature 🌻🌲🌾

‘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.’

-Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Cleanse and Begin Again

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul. Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” ~John Muir

‘There is new life in the soil for every [wo]man. There is healing in the trees for tired minds and for our overburdened spirits, there is strength in the hills, if we only lift up our eyes. Remember that nature is your great restorer.’

~ Calvin Coolidge
