Lovers of nature will be tickled pink by these sayings from nature-loving Blacks.

All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.
Toni Morrison

At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens -- that letting go -- you let go because you can. The world will always be there -- while you sleep it will be there -- when you wake it will be there as well. So you can sleep and there is reason to wake.
Toni Morrison

I know they are all environmentalists. I heard a lot of my speeches recycled.
Jesse Jackson

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
George Washington Carver

I stuck my head out the window this morning and spring kissed me bang in the face.
Langston Hughes

I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in Human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
Langston Hughes, The Negro Speaks of Rivers

If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.
Toni Morrison

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.
Alice Walker

It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.
Frederick Douglass

It's so nice to get flowers while you can still smell the fragrance.
Lena Horne

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
Langston Hughes

Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, ?I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway?.
Maya Angelou

Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise.
George Washington Carver

Quick, sunrise, come! Sunrise out of Africa, Quick, come!
Langston Hughes, Junior Addict

Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.
George Washington Carver

The Earth we share is not just a rock tossed through space, but a living, nurturing being. She cares for us, she deserves our care in return.
Michael Jackson

Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk?
Alice Walker, The Color Purple
