You can probably figure out what he is getting at in these quotes re. nature vs man.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

"The earth laughs in flowers.”

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

I'm putting a source-link for these little quips that you can follow. Just consider his point of view as, generally, "the world of man imprisons and the world of nature sets you free."
