WE ARE ONE

Nature Needs Us

Some say nature is apart from us, but some say nature is one with us. During time, people have said many things about nature like " Look Deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better" By: Albert Einstein, or " Eventually we'll realize that if we destroy the ecosystem, we destroy ourselves" By: Jonas Salk, or " Drinking nature is an unquenchable thirst" By: Berri Clove. Today i'm going to talk to you about those specific quotes, how they are different and how they are similar. The three quotes I just stated are similar to one another because they all symbolize one meaning, that nature is nothing to hold lightly with. Some researchers say that nature can relieve anxiety and stress, aid healing, and can increase concentration. When there are similarities their are also differences. The quotes are different because they all might have the same meaning in the words but were meant for different reasons.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German born theoretical physicist who said and wrote many quotes during his life time. Albert Einsteins quote " Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better" is different from the other quotes because it shows that if you can't truly understand nature you can't help it. To me Albert Einstein wasn't only an inventor but one with nature. He understood it better than almost anyone in history. So since he tried to understand nature as much as he could he wants everyone to understand it like he did or more than he did. His quote was different because he wanted everyone to see what could happen if they understood nature more.

His quote symbolizes one of the true meanings of nature. It was meant for the people who don't care much about nature and the people who think they can do what they want with nature. Nature can do many things like increase or reduce our seeing, hearing, mood, if your nervous or not, endocrine, your immune system. Nature can also heal you mentally by reducing your anger, fear, stress or can increase pleasant feelings. People say nature can bite you back if you don't take fond of it, and Albert Einstein probably thought the same thing.

Jonas Salk

Jonas Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He also wrote a lot of quotes during his life time like " Eventually we'll realize that if we destroy the ecosystem we destroy ourselves". This quote is different from the other 2 because it shows that if nature goes out of balance so does the economy. Jonas Salk is trying to say that if we destroy nature we destroy ourselves with it. Nature can sooth our pain, because some universities say that we are genetically programmed to find trees, plants, water or other natural element, because we are distracted by from the pain and discomfort.

Nature produces many plants that we use today to prevent viruses, so we won't get sick. Like Jonas Salk said if we destroy the ecosystem we can destroy ourselves ,by becoming sick and can't treat the disease or virus can be one way we can destroy ourselves. If we deforest the forest we can loose a lot of plants and trees we need to survive with. Some researchers say that looking at trees from the car can be as therapeutic as a walk in the woods. Some researchers also say that nature can provide nurture for the old and young, healthy and sick, the same way.

Berri Clove

Berri Clove said many quotes during his time but one quote was very smart, inspiring, and very important. The quote that was very out going was "Drinking nature is an unquenchable thirst". To me that quote meant if you can never get enough of nature it self and what it does for us. It means that you should get to know nature as much as you can before it's gone and you can't get anymore. If nature is gone that means that we will eventually be gone too, because we thrive because of nature, live off of nature, and need nature to survive.

Berri's quote was different from the others because to me he was referring to the ocean and its pollution. He was trying to say that if we pollute the water to much we won't have anything left to drink and will eventually have to water and become in need of water or become thirsty. From my perspective Berri Clove wanted people to stop polluting the ocean and any water systems so they won't become to dirty to drink or to acidic to drink. To me Berri quote was to persuade people around the world to stop polluting the water we drink or we won't be able to drink it anymore and would eventually become in need of some water. His quote is different because he wanted to stop pollution in the water we drink while the other quotes wanted people to know what nature does for us and what will happen if we don't treat nature like nature should be treated.

The End

Albert Einstein, Jonas Salk, and Berri Clove all have something in common. They all know what nature does for us and what we do for nature. Those 3 tried to understood nature as much as they could before their life time ended. They studied nature and used nature to help us in life, by creating and inventing things that uses trees, or plants to help us live better. They all thought nature was something not to be harmed with, or it could destroy both humans and nature it self.

Teacher Quote

Many teachers have said many things about nature but my teacher said " We survive off nature". To me she knows that if we destroy nature, soon we'll die too.
