Famous quotes containing the word trees:

    You like it under the trees in autumn,
    Because everything is half dead.
    The wind moves like a cripple among the leaves
    And repeats words without meaning.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The nectar and ambrosia, are withheld;
    And in the midst of spoils and slaves, we thieves
    And pirates of the universe, shut out
    Daily to a more thin and outward rind,
    Turn pale and starve. Therefore, to our sick eyes,
    The stunted trees look sick, the summer short,
    Clouds shade the sun, which will not tan our hay,
    And nothing thrives to reach its natural term;
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
