Which Waterfall Quote Did You Love the Most?

If we can’t take a break from the comfort of our own house, then nature immediately comes to our mind. Our amazement at the relaxing effect that it brings us is one of the reasons why we want to travel the world. 

The crashing of water on the stream and the warmth of people in the countryside always put us in undisturbed peace. Perhaps, it is the reason why poets and adventurous people seek these places. Nature is a sacred temple for those living in mountains of buildings and rivers of cars. 

In an age where trees are being cut and the water is being polluted, it is a privilege for us to enjoy the wonders of the environment. Hopefully, this collection makes you love and protect nature so that you can experience it longer.
