I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do. (Quote by - Willa Cather)

We all travel the milky way together, trees and men trees are travellers, in the ordinary sense. They make journeys, not very extensive ones, it is true: but our own little comes and goes are only little more than tree-wavings - many of them not so much. (Quote by - John Muir)

It is well that you should celebrate your Arbor Day thoughtfully, for within your lifetime the nation's need of trees will become serious. We of an older generation can get along with what we have, though with growing hardship; but in your full manhood and womanhood you will want what nature once so bountifully supplied and man so thoughtlessly destroyed; and because of that want you will reproach us, not for what we have used, but for what we have wasted. (Quote by - Theodore Roosevelt)

Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong. (Quote by - Winston Churchill)

Some boundless contiguity of shade. (Quote by - William Cowper)

You'd scarce expect one of my age To speak in public on the stage; And if I chance to fall below Demosthenes or Cicero, Don't view me with a critic's eye, But pass my imperfections by. Large streams from little fountains flow, Tall oaks from little acorns grow. (Quote by - David Everett)

To the great tree-loving fraternity we belong. We love trees with universal and unfeigned love, and all things that do grow under them or around them - the whole leaf and root tribe. (Quote by - Henry Ward Beecher)

No tree in all the grove but has its charms, Though each its hue peculiar. (Quote by - William Cowper)

A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. (Quote by - John Muir)

If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. (Quote by - Bible)

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. (Quote by - Nelson Henderson)

The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. (Quote by - Moliere)

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are. (Quote by - Osho)

Plant no other tree before the vine. (Quote by - Horace)

This is the forest primeval. (Quote by - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

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. (Quote by - Robert Louis Stevenson)

If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees. (Quote by - Hal Borland)

I think that I shall never scan A tree as lovely as a man. . . . . A tree depicts divinest plan, But God himself lives in a man. (Quote by - Joyce Kilmer)

Oh, leave this barren spot to me! Spare, woodman, space the beechen tree! (Quote by - Thomas Campbell)

Newspapers: dead trees with information smeared on them. (Quote by - Horizon)

Trees 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! (Quote by - John Muir)

There are rich counsels in the trees. (Quote by - Herbert P. Horne)

When men once reach their autumn, sickly joys fall off apace, as yellow leaves from trees (Quote by - Edward Young)

People just looked lost. Too many players looked like fish on trees. (Quote by - Paul Merson)

I willingly confess to so great a partiality for trees as tempts me to respect a man in exact proportion to his respect for them. (Quote by - James Russell Lowell)
