Coloring Our Beautiful World
By Margaret Kimball (Illustrator)
“At some point in life, the world’s beauty becomes enough.”— Toni Morrison
Naturalists, writers, artists, and other thinkers have long found inspiration in nature’s beauty and its effects. This beautiful coloring book captures their wonder and emotion, gathering dozens of quotations from such notables as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hans Christian Andersen, and Audrey Hepburn, as well as ancient lore. Original drawings, magnificently hand lettered, grace the pages; their peaceful landscapes, delightful flowers, charming birds, and animals will delight nature lovers and coloring enthusiasts alike.
Some of the quotes are:
“We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” —Native American proverb
“A flower blossoms for its own joy.” —Oscar Wilde
“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” —Khalil Gibran
“A tree has roots in the soil yet reaches to the sky.” —Wangari Maathai
