Birds
Engrave this Quote The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life. . . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are realised in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to the poet in their flight and song!

Earth
Engrave this Quote Every walk to the woods is a religious rite, every bath in the stream is a saving ordinance. Communion service is at all hours, and the bread and wine are from the heart and marrow of Mother Earth.

-John Burroughs
Engrave this Quote The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.

-John Burroughs
Engrave this Quote I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Men
Engrave this Quote Some men are like nails, very easily drawn; others however are more like rivets never drawn at all.

Nature
Engrave this Quote In the fields and woods more than anything else all things come to those who wait, because all things are on the move, and are sure sooner or later to come your way. To absorb a thing is better than to learn it, and we absorb what we enjoy. We learn things at school; we absorb them in the fields and woods. When we look upon Nature with fondness and appreciation, she meets us halfway and takes a deeper hold on us than when studiously conned. Hence I say the way of knowledge of Nature is the way of love and enjoyment, and is more surely found in the open air than in the school room or the laboratory.

-John Burroughs, Time and Change
Engrave this Quote Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.

Opportunity
Engrave this Quote The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.

Personality
Engrave this Quote Temperament lies behind mood; behind will, lies the fate of character. Then behind both, the influence of family the tyranny of culture; and finally the power of climate and environment; and we are free, only to the extent we rise above these.

Sacrifice
Engrave this Quote For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice -- no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.

Success & Failure

Travel
Engrave this Quote Travel and society polish one, but a rolling stone gathers no moss, and a little moss is a good thing on a man.
