Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye... it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

There are unknown forces in nature when we give ourselves wholly to her, without reserve, she lends them to us she shows us these forms, which our watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

We admire the world through what we love.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.

Life is what we make of it. Travels are travellers. What we see is not what we see but what we are.

Painters understand nature and love her and teach us to see.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
