Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.

John Ruskin

Nature provides exception to every rule.

Margarete Fuller

Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites.

William Ruckelshaus

The belief that we can manage the earth and improve on Nature is probably the ultimate expression of human conceit, but it has deep roots in the past and is almost universal.

Rene J. Dubos has it right that we think we can do better than natural. There are many good things that have been discovered for our benefit but at what cost to our environment?
