15“May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as foam”
16"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."

21Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.
22I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a clockmaker.
23Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday

25"Lord of the far horizons, Give us the eyes to see: Over the verge of the sundown, The beauty that is to be."
26In nature we see where God has been In nature we see where God has been. In our fellow man, we see where He is still at work.
27Which of us has not been stunned by the beauty of a Porpoise or its flexibility in motion?
28Instead 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.
29The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.
30I am comforted by life's stability, by earth's unchangeableness 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.

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.

51Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
52God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees the flowers, clouds, stars, the rivers, lakes and the sea
53To 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.
