John Muir Quotes

New beauty meets us at every step in all our wanderings.

The wedges of development are being driven hard, and none of the obstacles or defenses of nature can long withstand the onset of this immeasurable industry.

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.

A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.

Death is a kind nurse saying, "Come, children, to bed and get up in the morning" a gracious mother calling her children home.

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.

Of all the fire mountains which like beacons, once blazed along the Pacific Coast, Mount Rainier is the noblest.

Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.

Tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe.

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
