Earth, ocean, air, beloved brotherhood.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Speak no harsh, words of earth; she is our mother, and few of us her sons who have not added a wrinkle to her brow.
      - Alexander Smith

The rugged, all-nourishing earth.
      - Sophocles

We are pilgrims, not settlers; this earth is our inn, not our home.
      - John H. Vincent

Earth, thou great footstool of our God
  Who reigns on high; thou fruitful source
    Of all our raiment, life and food,
      Our house, our parent, and our nurse.
      - Isaac Watts

The materials of wealth are in the earth, in the seas, and in their natural and unaided productions.
      - Daniel Webster

Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own;
  Yearnings she hath in her own natural kind,
    And, even with something of a mother's mind,
      And no unworthy aim,
        The homely nurse doth all she can
          To make her foster child, her inmate man,
            Forget the glories he hath known
              And that imperial palace whence he came.
      - William Wordsworth

The common growth of Mother Earth
  Suffices me--her tears, her mirth,
    Her humblest mirth and tears.
      - William Wordsworth

Lean not on earth; it will pierce thee to the heart; a broken reed at best; but oft a spear, on its sharp point Peace bleeds and Hope expires.
      - Edward Young

Where is the dust that has not been alive?
  The spade, the plough, disturb our ancestors;
    From human mould we reap our daily bread.
      - Edward Young
