Famous quotes containing the word trees:

    For many are the trees of God that grow
    In Paradise, and various, yet unknown
    To us; in such abundance lies our choice
    As leaves a greater store of fruit untouched,
    Still hanging incorruptible, till men
    Grow up to their provision, and more hands
    Help to disburden Nature of her bearth.”
