A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on change, love, nature, place, observation, self, and universe

Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on spring, lebanon, glory, unknown god, home, memory, place, and cedars

Spring is beautiful everywhere, but it is more than beautiful in Lebanon. Spring is the spirit of an unknown God speeding through the world, which, as it reaches Lebanon, pauses, because now it is as at home with the souls of the Prophets and Kings hovering over the land, chanting with the brooks of Judea, the eternal Psalms of Solomon, renewing with the Cedars of Lebanon memories of an ancient glory.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on trees, deforestation, and place

Give me a land of boughs in leaf,
A land of trees that stand;
Where trees are fallen there is grief;
I love no leafless land.
