Famous quotes containing the words forests and/or swamp:

    It seems to me that we do not know nearly enough about ourselves; that we do not often enough wonder if our lives, or some events and times in our lives, may not be analogues or metaphors or echoes of evolvements and happenings going on in other people?—or animals?—even forests or oceans or rocks?—in this world of ours or, even, in worlds or dimensions elsewhere.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    This swamp is a monument to death. Snakes, alligators, quicksand, all bent on one thing: destruction.
    Edward D. Wood, Jr. (1922–1978)
