Famous quotes containing the word nature:

    The Red Cross in its nature, it aims and purposes, and consequently, its methods, is unlike any other organization in the country.

[ellipsis in original] it has by its nature a field of its own.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)

    There are some things, my dear Fisher, which do not bear much looking into. You undoubtedly have heard of the Siberian goat herder who tried to discover the true nature of the sun.

    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
