Turner's Tempest

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) - Shade and Darkness: The Evening of the Deluge, 1843

"Nature is an infinite sphere of which the centre is everywhere and the circumference nowhere."

Blaise Pascal

"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."

Henry David Thoreau

"I believe in God, only I spell it Nature."

Frank Lloyd Wright

"That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone, that we are more deeply inserted into existence than the course of a single life would lead us to believe."

John Berger

"The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful."

e. e. cummings
