If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
Carl Sagan

In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.
John Fowles

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

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Rabindranath Tagore
