Famous quotes containing the words john and/or birch:

    The very fact that there are experts may be intimidating; we hate to think that there must be one best way to handle any situation as parents and that we don’t know what it is. So as we get more and more advice we seem less and less sure of what we ought to do for our children.
    —C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    The birch stripped of its bark, or the charred stump where a tree has been burned down to be made into a canoe,—these are the only traces of man, a fabulous wild man to us. On either side, the primeval forest stretches away uninterrupted to Canada, or to the “South Sea”; to the white man a drear and howling wilderness, but to the Indian a home, adapted to his nature, and cheerful as the smile of the Great Spirit.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
