Nature, like liberty, is but restrained
By the same laws which first herself ordained.
            —Alexander Pope

  Nature, like oil, will rise uppermost.
            —James Ralph
  5
  Nature, like a loving mother, is ever trying to keep land and sea, mountain and valley, each in its place, to hush the angry winds and waves, balance the extremes of heat and cold, of rain and drought, that peace, harmony, and heart may reign supreme.
            —Elizabeth Cady Stanton
