Nature's Beauty

Flowers

 

Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Hans Christian Andersen
 

Birds

 

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.

Douglas Coupland

Bugs

 

Every kid as a bug period.  I never grew out of mine.

E.O. Wilson

Bees

 

The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.

Saint Francis de Sales
 

Butterflies

 

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.

Rabindranath Tagore

Lizards

 

I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion.

Nicholas Cage
 

Dragonflies

 

I can still only see a dragonfly, its wings as thin and light as silk and its body the color of rainbow. But on the wings of this dragonfly I take off and fly, for my soul carries no weight. It is our bodies – these borrowed vehicles of flesh and bone – that weigh us down. Our spirits are eternally free and invincible.
