atmosphere

A Quote by Sir Isaac Newton on nature, circulatory, atmosphere, earth, sun, conserve, river, spirit, light, and ether

For nature is a perpetual circulatory worker, generating fluids out of solids, and solids out of fluids, fixed things out of volatile, & volatile out of fixed, subtle out of gross, & gross out of subtle, Some things to ascend & make the upper terrestrial juices, Rivers and the Atmosphere; & by consequence others to descend for a Requital to the former. And as the Earth, so perhaps may the Sun imbibe this spirit copiously to conserve his Shining, & keep the Planets from receding further from him. And they that will, may also suppose, that this Spirit affords or carries with it thither the solary fuel & material Principle of Light; And that the vast ethereal Spaces between us, & the stars are for a sufficient repository for this food of the Sun and Planets. 

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)

A Quote by J. E. Lovelock on living, matter, earth, whales, viruses, oaks, algae, atmosphere, single living entity, and gaia

The entire range of living matter on Earth from whales to viruses and from oaks to algae could be regarded as constituting a single living entity capable of maintaining the Earth's atmosphere to suit its overall needs and endowed with faculties and powers far beyond those of its constituent parts.

A Quote by Virginia Satir on family, flourish, atmosphere, individual, difference, mistakes, toleration, and flexible

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on earth, sun, land, water, air, life, light, energy, and atmosphere

Earth as we know it came into being through its four great components: land, water, air, and life, all interacting in the light and energy of the sun. Although there was a sequence in the formation of the land sphere, the atmosphere, the water sphere, and the life sphere, these have so interacted with one another in the shaping of the Earth that we must somehow think of these as all present to one another and interacting from the beginning.
