“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction
and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.
But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds,
and you will know, too,
when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”
“On Earth Day, we celebrate all the gifts
the world and nature make available to us.
We recognize our complete dependence on its bounty.
And we acknowledge the need for good stewardship
to preserve its fruits for future generations.”
~ John Hoeven
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
“Assuredly there is no more lovely worship of God
than that for which no image is required,
but which springs up in our breast spontaneously
when nature speaks to the soul,
and the soul speaks to nature face to face.”
