 J.S. Mill, Nature
NATURE, natural, and the group of words derived from them, or allied to them in etymology, have at all times filled a great place in the thoughts and taken a strong hold on the feelings of mankind.
Nature means the sum of all phenomena, together with the causes which produce them; including not only all that happens, but all that is capable of happening; the unused capabilities of causes being as much a part of the idea of Nature, as those which take effect.

 Laws of Nature [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Laws of Nature are to be distinguished both from Scientific Laws and from Natural Laws.
On one account, the Regularity Theory, Laws of Nature are statements of the uniformities or regularities in the world; they are mere descriptions of the way the world is. On the other account, the Necessitarian Theory, Laws of Nature are the "principles" which govern the natural phenomena of the world.
All laws of nature of physics, of chemistry, of biology, of economics, of psychology, of sociology, and so forth — are nothing more, nor anything less, than (a certain subclass of) true propositions.

 Aristotle -- Motion and its Place in Nature [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Entelecheia means continuing in a state of completeness, or being at an end which is of such a nature that it is only possible to be there by means of the continual expenditure of the effort required to stay there.
Motion will thus not have to be understood as the mysterious departure of things from rest, which alone can be described, but as the outcome of the action upon one another of divergent and conflicting innate tendencies of things.
Rest will be the anomaly, since things will be understood as so constituted by nature as to pass over of themselves into certain states of activity, but states of rest will be explainable as dynamic states of balance among things with opposed tendencies.
