Quotes for Nature Lovers – John Muir

“Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, inciting at once to work and rest! Days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God. Nevermore, however weary, should one faint by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day; whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever.” 
My First Summer in the Sierra, 1911

All who have enjoyed a visit to Yosemite National Park owe a debt of gratitude to John Muir and his work in preserving this magnificent place for us to explore, to find refreshment in its beauty, and to feel the inspiring spirit of this one of a kind place on earth.

In my up-coming series from Yosemite I will be sharing some of my magical moments….once in each season, sharing with words and hopefully video. The first visit will be coming quickly in April with a visit to the trees and birds of this park that John Muir loved so much.

  1. John Muir is one of my father-in-law’s favorite people. That is a great quote and I love your beautiful photos.

  2. Absolutely wonderful, inspiring and gorgeous!

  3. And there it is! Someone covering simplicity had mentioned Thoreau and I commented the Muir was another wonderful quote-provider (I use his often in my green business). Love Muir. Thinking of re-reading his life. Thanks for the share!
