Nature delights in self-discovery by manifesting herself in infinite variations of phenomena.
The above is perhaps my favorite root quote, yet it's not precisely accurate, nor do I know who wrote it - Ralph Waldo Emerson? If you know, please send me the accurate quote & author's name.
I say 'root' because it gives context to many other meaningful quotes:
“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and
the winds long to play with your hair.” Khalil Gibran
"The Goddess of Old Europe and Ancient Crete
represented the unity of life in nature,
delight in the diversity of form,
the powers of birth, death and regeneration." Carol P. Christ
"To be wild is not to be crazy or psychotic.
True wildness is a love of nature,
a delight in silence,
a voice free to say spontaneous things,
and an exuberant curiosity in the face of the unknown." Robert Bly
"A poem begins in delight
and ends in wisdom." Robert Frost
"Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others,
and the delight in the recognition." Alexander Smith
