Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts and no one to thank.
“Eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides.”
You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
The sea hath no king but God alone.
We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.
What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.
The longer the island of knowledge, then longer the shoreline of wonder”
"On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it."
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.
The true peace of God begins at any spot a thousand miles from the nearest land.
The poetry of the earth is never dead.
"There are plenty of ruined buildings in the world, but no ruined stones."
“May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as foam”
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is a symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature--the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter. The lasting pleasures of contact with the natural world...are available to anyone who will place himself under the influence of earth, sea and sky and their amazing life."
"Are these the end times? Yes. And they have been this way since the beginning.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”
“Nobody can go back and make a new beginning, but anyone can start a new ending”
“The Earth is what we all have in common”
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.
I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a clockmaker.
Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday
The sailors know that the sea is dangerous and the storm is terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore
" Lord of the far horizons, Give us the eyes to see: Over the verge of the sundown, The beauty that is to be."
In nature we see where God has been. In our fellow man, we see where He is still at work.
Which of us has not been stunned by the beauty of a Porpoise or its flexibility in motion?
Instead of a bottom-line based on money and power, we need a new bottom-line that defines productivity and creativity as where corporations, governments, schools, public institutions, and social practices are judged as efficient, rational and productive not only to the extent they maximize money and power, but to the extent they maximize love and caring, ethical and ecological sensitivity, and our capacities to respond with awe and wonder at the grandeur of creation.
The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.
I am comforted by life's stability, by earth's unchangeableness. What has seemed new and frightening assumes its place in the unfolding of knowledge. It is good to know our universe. What is new is only new to us.
When you're finally up at the moon looking back on earth, all those differences and nationalistic traits are pretty well going to blend, and you're going to get a concept that maybe this really is one world and why the hell can't we learn to live together like decent people.
In every man's heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty.
A setting sun still whispers a promise for tomorrow.
We learned a lot about the Moon, but what we really learned was about the Earth. The fact that just from the distance of the Moon you can put your thumb up and you can hide the Earth behind your thumb. Everything that you've ever known, your loved ones, your business, the problems of the Earth itself—all behind your thumb. And how insignificant we really all are, but then how fortunate we are to have this body and to be able to enjoy loving here amongst the beauty of the Earth itself.
“There is nothing wrong with CHANGE if it is in the right direction” (Nuff said)
In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
He that does good for good's sake seeks neither paradise nor reward, but he is sure of both in the end.
“ “ Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. Ecclesiastes 1:7
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:9-10
Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children.
"One who finds a friend, finds a treasure."
“Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.”
God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.
A wonderful bird is the pelican His bill will hold more than his belican. He can take in his beak Food enough for a week, But I'm damned if I see how the helican.
Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees the flowers, clouds, stars, the rivers, lakes and the sea
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
