[This Land, Although Not My Native Land,Will Be Remembered Forever.And The Sea's Lightly Iced,Unsalty Water.The Sand On The Bottom Is Whiter Than Chalk,The Air Is Heady, Like Wine,And The Rosy Body Of The PinesIs Naked In The Sunset Hour.And The Sunset Itself On Such Waves Of EtherThat I Just Can't ComprehendWhether It Is The End Of The Day, The End Of The World,Or The Mystery Of Mysteries In Me Again.]

Quotes About Trees Thoreau

"But all I could make use of was all that was valuable. I had enough to eat and to supply my wants, and what was all the rest to me? If I killed more flesh than I could eat, the dog must eat it, or the vermin. If I sowed more corn than I could eat, it must be spoiled. The trees that I cut down were lying to rot on the ground. I could make no more use of them than for fewel; and that I had no occasion for, but to dress my food.In a word, the nature and experience of things dictated to me, upon just reflection, that all the good things of this world are no farther good to us than they are for our use; and that whatever we may heap up indeed to give others, we enjoy just as much as we can use and no more." - Author: Daniel Defoe

Quotes About Chen

"A tree is alive, and thus it is always more than you can see. Roots to leaves, yes-those you can, in part, see. But it is more-it is the lichens and moss and ferns that grow on its bark, the life too small to see that lives among its roots, a community we know of, but do not think on. It is every fly and bee and beetle that uses it for shelter or food, every bird that nests in its branches. Every one an individual, and yet every one part of the tree, and the tree part of every one." - Author: Elizabeth Moon
