Green Rhapsody



Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. Pedro Calderon de la Barca


When you’re green, your growing. When you’re ripe, you rot. -Ray Kroc


When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it. -William Blake

The future will either be green or not at all. Bob Brown


For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. Martin Luther


The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. William Blake


Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hold no preference among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. -Edward Abbey
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. -Albert Einstein
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. -Robert Frost
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. -John Lubbock
Two dark shadows so immersed in the greenery of Marken village, that they forgot of the coming dusk. -faa
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. -George Eliot
The whole frames were taken in Zaanse Schans village, Zandaam and Marken in the Netherlands. I still remember the smell of grass, the chirping of birds on the sky, the quack of ducks on the pond, the cute way other ducks lazying on the edge of other ponds, the cold breeze of March wind and so many more of nature’s wonders. How I wish to be back on that same path and forgetting now. If only I can find such greenery here, in my tumultuous mind.
