I love nature. The sun, the trees, the animals, and the birds. There’s nothing that compares to exploring the natural world around you, whether it’s an urban park or a mountain range. Sometimes I just need to be by myself with my thoughts and my surroundings—and there’s no better way to do that than by going outside! Here are some of my favorite quotes about playing outdoors:
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. – John Burroughs
John Burroughs was an American naturalist and essayist who was very influential in the American conservation movement. He was also a close friend of John Muir, who founded the Sierra Club in 1892.
Burroughs was one of the first to promote the conservation movement in America and he enjoyed a wide audience for his writings, especially “Word Studies,” which analyzed words such as “beauty” and “love.” He is also known for his essays on nature including essays entitled “Nature’s Calendar” (1881), “Walking” (1906), and “Springtime with John Burroughs” (1907).
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. – Albert Einstein
The world around us can help us develop a deeper understanding of the world around us; it’s all there to see. If we look deeper, we’ll be able to see what’s happening right in front of our eyes. The more closely we look at nature and its processes, the clearer our vision becomes about how things work in general. Nature is beautiful because it is an expression of harmony; every part works together toward a common goal: survival.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. – Anne Frank
“The woods were made for the hunter of dreams, the brooks for the fishers of song; all things were made for their uses, each bird of the air, and tree of the field, for the free wonder of children.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. – John Muir
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.” – Carl Jung
In wilderness is the preservation of the world. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Playing in nature allows children to feel a sense of wonder, curiosity and awe – it’s a chance to connect with something bigger than themselves.” – Richard Louv
“An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” – Henry David Thoreau
There are many benefits to spending time outdoors.
- Getting outside in nature can be an excellent way to relax after a stressful day.
- Exercising outside can make you happier and healthier, according to research by Harvard Medical School professor John Ratey.
- Outdoor play is good for kids because it helps them develop social skills, learn how to play with others, and get more exercise than they would otherwise.
“Nature is the ultimate play space – it provides endless opportunities for exploration, creativity, and adventure.”
“The more children play outside, the healthier they will be, both mentally and physically.” – Richard Louv
“Like music and art, Love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries”Jimmy Carter
In the presence of nature, A wild delight runs through the man, In spite of real sorrows. Nature says” He is my creature, And maugre all his impertinent griefs, He shall be glad with me”Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Outside, Quiet children start to talk more and children who find it hard to be constrained begin to relax. Children need to be outside long enough to feel at home there”Emma Shaw
“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.”Margaret McMillan
