    [Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul. Strictly speaking, therefore, all that is separate from us, all which Philosophy distinguishes as the NOT ME, that is, both nature and art, all other men and my own body, must be ranked under this name, NATURE. In enumerating the values of nature and casting up their sum, I shall use the word in both senses; in its common and in its philosophical import. […] Nature, in the common sense, refers to essences unchanged by man; space, the air, the river, the leaf.

[…] It is to bring about an understanding and a deeper appreciation of Nature’s value to man that the Club is largely organized. Its other interest is in the study of nature and the bringing together in an organization of those so interested.
