Need Nature Quotes?
Do you find yourself in need of some nature quotes? Well, then, I can hook you up! Just go to the Library of Congress and look up!
I visited the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress last October. The interior of the building is memorizing. Not only is it downright gorgeous and appealing to the eye, but it is appealing to the intellect as well. Along the walls and the ceilings they have incorporated a number of quotes. I was pleased with how many focused on nature. Here are two of my favorites.
The quote comes from Act II of Shakespeare’s As You Like It:
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.
This is a snippet of a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
In nature, all is useful, all is beautiful. It is therefore beautiful, because it is alive, moving, reproductive; it is therefore useful, because it is symmetrical and fair. Beauty will not come at the call of a legislature, nor will it repeat in England or America its history in Greece. It will come, as always, unannounced, and spring up between the feet of brave and earnest men.
With all that knowledge just on its walls, it is no wonder the Library of Congress inspired a unit of measurement for information.
