"There are unknown forces in nature; when we give ourselves wholly to her, without reserve, she lends them to us; she shows us these forms, which our watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect"

- Auguste Rodin

About this Quote

In this quote, Auguste Rodin is revealing his belief in the mystical and effective forces of nature. He suggests that when we fully immerse ourselves in nature, without keeping back, she will expose these unknown forces to us. These forces take the form of shapes and patterns that are not visible to our eyes, and are beyond the understanding of our intelligence. Rodin implies that by surrendering ourselves to nature, we can tap into a much deeper level of knowledge and understanding that is not available through logic or reason. He encourages us to embrace the unidentified and trust in the wisdom of nature.
