John Muir – Words Crush Wednesday Quote

John Muir

I am reminded of the beauty that surrounds us. The serenity found in nature helps to calm a stressed and restless soul. I need to spend more time enjoying and appreciating the natural wonders of which we are benefactors.

John Muir (1838 – 1914) was a Scottish-American naturalist and author. He was an early advocate of preservation of the wilderness it the United States.

    You need actual physical connection to feel the need to preserve it’s beauty & riches. He was a poetic conservationist.

      John Muir really did a lot for furthering concern for the environment, and he lived at a time when there was not much emphasis on that.

    Thank you for this – it’s something I needed to read. I am surrounded by such beauty but often get caught in the manic trappings of urban life.

      It can be the most calming thing, if we can just remember to relax and enjoy it.l

    When I read your posts, I think, how lucky you are to live in a beautiful country with a wonderful climate and the freedom to be able to walk around most times of the year.
    I fail to appreciate the beauty in the desert and the sands and your post has inspired me to do just that.
    Everything in nature has a beauty to it.
    Thank you, Helen !

    You are so welcome. When I first moved to New Mexico I really missed the lush green of Wisconsin but I have grown to appreciate the unique beauty here.
