A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.  ~James Dent

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.  ~Gertrude Jekyll

In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.  No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.  ~Aldo Leopold

Do what we can, summer will have its flies.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.  ~John Lubbock

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We need focus more on Nature and what is happening to this world upon which we live.  I believe each and every human being, regardless their circumstance, needs to respect all life.  All of Nature—animals, whether the fly, walk, crawl, or swim; the ground upon which we walk, the trees, plants, rock and water—is alive, and must not be taken for granted. If we continue to fail to see our interconnectedness, we each have only ourselves to blame for its demise.  Disrespect of Nature equals disrespect of all life. ~L.L. Abbott

In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.  ~Eric Hoffer

 

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." ~Mohandas Ghandi

"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

We’re all of us a little greedy... We’re all somewhat courageous, and we’re all considerably cowardly. We’re all imperfect, and life is simply a perpetual, unending struggle against those imperfections. ~Sidney Poitier

Adversity is the first path to truth. ~Lord Byron

As far as inner transformation is concerned, there is nothing you can do about it.  You cannot transform yourself, and you certainly cannot transform your partner or anybody else.  All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter, ~Eckhart Tolle

Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~Harriet Tubman

"Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration. ~Kahlil Gibran

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. ~John F. Kennedy

The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.  The occasion is piled high with difficutly and we must rise with the occasion.  As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. ~Abraham Lincoln

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ~Hebrews 11:1
