"So prayer is our sometimes real selves trying to communicate with the Real, with Truth, with the Light. It is us reaching out to be heard, hoping to be found by a light and warmth in the world, instead of darkness and cold. Even mushrooms respond to light - I suppose they blink their mushroomy eyes, like the rest of us." ~Anne Lamott~ (Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers)

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature...,
..., the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter." ~Rachel Carson~
