John Burroughs quotes :
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.John Burroughs
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.John Burroughs
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.John Burroughs
For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice - no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.John Burroughs
He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.John Burroughs
If we take science as our sole guide, if we accept and hold fast that alone which is verifiable, the old theology must go.John Burroughs
A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.John Burroughs
A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.John Burroughs
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.John Burroughs
I have discovered the secret of happiness - it is work, either with the hands or the head. The moment I have something to do, the draughts are open and my chimney draws, and I am happy.John Burroughs
I seldom go into a natural history museum without feeling as if I were attending a funeral.John Burroughs
