Famous quotes containing the word timber:

    This fellow will but join you together as they join
    wainscot; then one of you will prove a shrunk panel, and
    like green timber warp, warp.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Here commences what was called, twenty years ago, the best timber land in the State. This very spot was described as “covered with the greatest abundance of pine,” but now this appeared to me, comparatively, an uncommon tree there,—and yet you did not see where any more could have stood, amid the dense growth of cedar, fir, etc.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Green springs the tree, hemp grows, the wag is wild,
    But when they meet, it makes the timber rot;
    It frets the halter, and it chokes the child.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)
