The power of nature
When we stop to notice nature, we gain so much. These inspiring nature quotes encourage us to slow down and appreciate the world around us has a great impact on our outlook. For me, nature is not just something pretty to look at, but it is an energy which draws me close.
Every day I take inspiration from Mother Nature and I decided to share with you some of my favourite inspiring nature quotes that truly resonate with me.
Some times it is difficult to put into your own words, the impact something can have on you. In my opinion, these people say it perfectly.

I hope you enjoy these inspiring nature quotes ….
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. – Albert Einstein
Whenever I am feeling lost, or need to take a step back, I usually head for the garden or some other nature spot.
I find that when I focus my thoughts else where, I tend to gain more clarity. Albert Einstein’s words resonate with me here.
I do find focus in the simplicity of nature.
Patience is a virtue
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think we could all do with a little more patience in our daily lives. I particularly love this quote because nature does not rush…… ever.
Yet nothing is ever missed.
The tides come in and out as they need to, the flowers bloom when they are ready and the sun rises when it is time.
Nature shows us that great things come to us when we are patient, when the time is right.
Rushing achieves nothing but stress and mistakes. I think we can all learn a lot from this.

Go with the flow
The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We cannot change what is meant to be.
Just as the rain comes, circumstances happen in our lives and rather than fight the inevitable, learn to go with the flow.
Let go a little, accept what is and live in that moment.
Savour the moment
Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet. – Roger Mules
Many of us go about our lives, never really absorbing the moment.
The modern world has caused us to live on autopilot.
When was the last time you heard a song ? Most days I imagine.
However when was the last time you truly listened to a song.
When you heard every lyric sung and you truly connected with the song ?
How about the last time you savoured the taste of every mouthful from your meal, or watched the flowers dance in the wind.
Examining their intricacy, beauty and colour ?
The next time your caught in the rain, be a young child again.
Listen to the sound it makes, feel each drop as it lands on your cheeks, maybe even splash in a puddle.
Never take the little things for granted. There is so much joy to be had in the simple things.
I would love to have a read of my post on mindfulness which is full of tips on living in the moment!
The inspiration of nature
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. – Eleonora Duse
Throughout my teenage years and early 20’s I spent a long time contemplating where I was with religion.
What religion meant to me and trying to find a deeper connection with the world.
I realised that they times I felt truly at peace and connected on a higher level, were when I was in nature.
For me, nature is god.
Embrace your uniqness
In nature nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and still they are beautiful. – Alice Walker
I love this quote ?
One of the most inspiring nature quotes of all.
We live in a pressurised world where we are conditioned to strive for excellence in every aspect of our lives.
The pressure from media and our peers to look our best at all times. With some of us restoring to cosmetic surgery, extreme diets and self torture to be perfect.
What we fail to see, is that we ARE all perfect in our own ways.
Nature created all the different shapes and sizes, colours and quirks to make us and everything unique.
We should not aim to be like everyone else, just like a tree does not compete with the tree standing next to it.
We are who we are for a reason and that individuality is our strength in life.
My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent to churchgoing. – Aidous Huxley
All I can possibly add to that pearl of wisdom is…….. Amen.
