But on and up, where Nature's heart
  Beats strong amid the hills.
      - Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton,
        Tragedy of the Lac de Gaube (st. 2)

In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant, it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to go out and see her riches, and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.
      - John Milton

Beldam Nature.
      - John Milton,
        At a Vacation Exercise in the College
         (1, 48)

Wherefore did Nature pour her bounties forth
  With such a full and unwithdrawing hand,
    Covering the earth with odours, fruits, flocks,
      Thronging the seas with spawn innumerable,
        But all to please and sate the curious taste?
      - John Milton, Comus (l. 710)

And live like Nature's bastards, not her sons.
      - John Milton, Comus (l. 727)

Into this wild abyss,
  The womb of Nature and perhaps her grave.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. II, l. 910)

Thus with the year
  Seasons return, but not to me returns
    Day, or the sweet approach of even or morn,
      Or sight of vernal bloom, or summer's rose,
        Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine;
          But cloud instead, and ever-during dark
            Surrounds me, from the cheerful ways of men
              Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair
                Presented with a universal blank
                  Of Nature's works to me expunged and rased,
                    And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 40)

And liquid lapse of murmuring streams.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. VIII, l. 263)

Accuse not Nature, she hath done her part;
  Do thou but thine!
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. VIII, l. 561)

Let us a little permit Nature to take her own way; she better understands her own affairs than we.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne,

Nature is just to all mankind, and repays them for their industry. She renders them industrious by annexing rewards in proportion to their labor.
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat)

And not from Nature up to Nature's God,
  But down from Nature's God look Nature through.
      - Robert Montgomery,
        Luther--A Landscape of Domestic Life

Divine Providence has spread her table everywhere, not with a juiceless green carpet, but with succulent herbage and nourishing grass, upon which most beasts feed.
      - Thomas Moore

There is not in the wide world a valley so sweet
  As that vale in whose bosom the bright waters meet.
      - Thomas Moore, The Meeting of the Waters

Nature, in her most dazzling aspects or stupendous parts, is but the background and theatre of the tragedy of man.
      - John Morley, 1st Viscount of Blackburn

And we, with Nature's heart in tune,
  Concerted harmonies.
      - William Motherwell, Jeannie Morrison

I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
      - John Muir

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
      - John Muir

Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done and suffered by her creatures.
      - John Muir

None of Nature's landscapes are ugly so long as they are wild.
      - John Muir

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
      - John Muir

Who publishes the sheet-music of the winds or the music of water written in river-lines?
      - John Muir

Nature is an AEolian harp, a musical instrument whose tones are the re-echo of higher strings within us.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

Man must go back to nature for information.
      - Thomas Paine

It seems strange that a butterfly's wing should be woven up so thin and gauzy in the monstrous loom of nature, and be so delicately tipped with fire from such a gross hand, and rainbowed all over in such a storm of thunderous elements. The marvel is that such great forces do such nice work.
      - Theodore Parker
