40 Inspiring homesteading quotes connecting children with nature

40 Inspiring homesteading quotes connecting children with nature

Ever since I can remember I was a collector of quotes. They always made me feel understood. They would boost my mood and inspired me in so many ways.

We can go to Rumi for a particularly poignant quote on love or life that touches our soul.

We can lean on Henry David Thoreau to understand the longing in each of us to return to nature.

We can be utterly inspired by Nicolette Sowder and her naturally touching words connecting children to nature.

I've started a collection of quotes that call me and inspire me in my homesteading journey. Whether they're about getting back to a simpler life, living at harmony with nature, or developing our own self-sufficiency.

I hope they inspire you as well!
