BC: The End

FC: Trees by: Kayla Wycoff

1: The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. - William Blake, 1799, The Letters

3: The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

4: May my life be like a great hospitable tree, and may weary wanderers find in me a rest. - John Henry Jowett

5: The beauty of the trees,the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, speaks to me.The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the trail of the sun, the strength of fire, and the life that never goes away, they speak to me. And my heart soars. - Chief Dan George

6: Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. - Abraham Lincoln

8: He who plants a tree, plants a hope. - Lucy Larcom, Plant a Tree

9: They are beautiful in their peace, they are wise in their silence. They will stand after we are dust. They teach us, and we tend them. - Galeain ip Altiem MacDunelmor

11: Stand Tall and Proud Sink your roots deeply into the Earth Reflect the light of a greater source Think long term Go out on a limb Remember your place among all living beings Embrace with joy the changing seasons For each yields its own abundance The Energy and Birth of Spring The Growth and Contentment of Summer The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter - Ilan Shamir, Advice From a Tree

12: Of all man's works of art, a cathedral is greatest. A vast and majestic tree is greater than that. - Henry Ward Beecher

13: Enormous and solid but swaying, beaten by the wind but chained, murmur of a million leaves against my window. Riot of trees, surge of dark green sounds. The grove, suddenly still, is a web of fronds and branches. - Octavio Paz, The Grove, Return - 1975. The Collected Poems of Octavio Paz: 1957 -1987. (New Directions Paperback.)

14: The Tree The calm quiet strength of a tree Anchored deep in the earth Reaching high in the sky The calm quiet strength of a tree The calm quiet strength of a tree Full of life from its roots To the tiniest branch he calm quiet strength of a treeAnd oh, how it comforts me How it teaches me Without a sound Then I realize at once That this tree and I are one In eternityThe calm quiet strength of a tree From the weight of its trunk To its delicate leaves The calm quiet strength of a treeThe calm quiet strength of a treeShowing anyone near All the secrets of time The calm quiet strength of a tree Copyright 1994 Tom Splitt Listen to The Tree Robert Johnson

16: A tree growing out of the ground is as wonderful today as it ever was. It does not need to adopt new and startling methods.- Robert Henri

17: Birth, life and death - each took place on the hidden side of a leaf. - Toni Morrison

19: Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky, How beautiful it is? All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness There is a poem, there is a song. Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring. When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with The music of many leaves, Which in due season fall and are blown away. And this is the way of life. - Krishnamurti

20: Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come. - Chinese proverb

21: I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do. - Willa Cather (1873-1947), O Pioneers 1913
