Famous quotes containing the word nature:

    Psychologists have set about describing the true nature of women with a certainty and a sense of their own infallibility rarely found in the secular world.

    This queen will live. Nature awakes,
    A warmth breathes out of her. She hath not been
    Entranced above five hours. See how she ‘gins
    To blow into life’s flower again.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A work of art is an abstract or epitome of the world. It is the result or expression of nature, in miniature. For, although the works of nature are innumerable and all different, the result or the expression of them all is similar and single.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
