Sunday Morning

God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars. 
~Author unknown, commonly attributed to Martin Luther

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. 
~Henry David Thoreau

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars. ~Walt Whitman

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. ~Frank Lloyd Wright

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church,
I keep it staying at Home—
With a bobolink for a Chorister,
And an Orchard, for a Dome.
~Emily Dickinson

I’ve always regarded nature as the clothing of God. ~Alan Hovhaness

Nature is my medicine. ~Sara Moss-Wolfe

The great pulsation of nature beats too in my breast, and when I carol aloud, I am answered by a thousand-fold echo. I hear a thousand nightingales. Spring hath sent them to awaken Earth from her morning slumber, and Earth trembles with ecstasy, her flowers are hymns, which she sings in inspiration to the sun... 
 ~Heinrich Heine
