Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day listening to the murmur of the water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

~  Sir John Lubbock (1834-1913)


“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”

~ Gerard De Nerval, writer and poet (1808-1855)
