Nature's Stunning Abstracts - Masterpiece "Paintings"

"Each man’s necessary path, though as obscure and apparently uneventful as that of a beetle in the grass, is the way to the deepest joys he is susceptible of; though he converses only with moles and fungi and disgraces his relatives, it is no matter if he knows what is steel to his flint."
  -Thoreau journal entry; excerpted in Thoreau and the Art of Life

"The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention."
 - Julia Margaret Cameron


The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, 
for I have seen the shadow on the moon, 
and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church
- Ferdinand Magellan


"Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand." 
-Thoreau journal entry; excerpted in Thoreau and the Art of Life


"Life is much too important to be taken seriously."
 - Oscar Wilde


"Between the banks of pain and pleasure the river of life flows."
 - Nisargadatta Maharaj


"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - 
the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science"
 - Albert Einstein from Living Philosophies

"One is never so strong as when one is broken."
 - Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan


"Hand over the controls to the universe and go along for the ride. 
When you're a passenger, 
you can appreciate all the beautiful scenery that you might otherwise miss."
