LANDSCAPE

Thou who wouldst see the lovely and the wild
  Mingled in harmony on Nature's face,
    Ascend our rocky mountains. Let thy foot
      Fail not with weariness, for on their tops
        The beauty and the majesty of earth,
          Spread wide beneath, shall make thee to forget
            The steep and toilsome way.
      - William Cullen Bryant

This is grand! 'tis solemn! 'tis an education of itself to look upon!
      - James Fenimore Cooper

There is a property in the horizon which no man has, but he whose eyes can integrate all the parts,--that is, the poet.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mind is never more highly gratified than in contemplating a natural landscape.
      - Henry Home, Lord Kames

Every antique farm-house and moss-grown cottage is a picture.
      - Washington Irving

Landscapes are Nature's pictures.
      - M.E. Lee

Oh, what a glory doth this world put on for him who, with a fervent heart, goes forth under the bright, and glorious sky!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There, interspersed in lawns and opening glades, thin trees arise, that shun each other's shade.
      - Alexander Pope

However, I think a plain space near the eye gives it a kind of liberty it loves; and then the picture, whether you choose the grand or beautiful, should be held up at its proper distance. Variety is the principal ingredient in beauty; and simplicity is essential to grandeur.
      - William Shenstone

Heavens! what a goodly prospect spreads around,
  Of hills, and dales, and woods, and lawns, and spires,
    And glittering towns, and gilded streams, till all
      The stretching landscape into smoke decays.
      - James Thomson (1)
