Marcus Braybrooke, a leading figure in the Interfaith movement, has chosen quotations from religious and secular writings from around the world, all focusing on the mind, body, and spirit.
"All things are part of one single system, which is called Nature; the individual life is good when it is in harmony with Nature.” (Zeno of Citium, Cyprus, 300-260 BCE) Through the ages, poets, philosophers, and religious thinkers have experienced earthly beauty as a manifestation of heavenly goodness. This eye-catching volume showcases nature’s splendor though some of the world’s most memorable quotations and magnificent images. It covers the cosmos, our planet, the weather and seasons, animals, man-made fruits of the imagination (including music, literature, and art), and the spiritual dimension of color, light, and all that’s sublime. From a delicate image of a bee alighting on petals to a close-up of a puffy, lacy dandelion, celebrate all that is beautiful.
