There is always Music amongst the trees in the Garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it. ~Minnie Aumonier~
The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk, and then dead timber. The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands, translated from French by Stuart Gilbert
It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
He who plants a tree
Plants a hope.
~Lucy Larcom, "Plant a Tree"
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.
There are rich counsels in the trees.
~Herbert P. Horne
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.
~Cree Indian Proverb
We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them. We say we love trees, yet we cut them down. And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved. ~Author Unknown
