a space flowing with whispers...
offering food for our senses...
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
There are rich counsels in the trees.
~ Herbert P. Horne
If you would know strength and patience,
welcome the company of trees.
~ Hal Borland
I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground
as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they
travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth
in all directions with every wind, going and coming
like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun
two million miles a day, and through space
heaven knows how fast and far!
~ John Muir
