I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.— Willa Cather  (O Pioneers, 1913)

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.  William Shakespeare

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper, That we may record our emptiness.   Kahlil Gibran
