We run around so much - with the best intentions: I want to save the rain forest. I've gotta clean up the oceans. I've gotta save the dolphins. All worthy efforts, but if you're not centered and you don't have the serenity in your life you need to accomplish that task, you're not going to do a very good job.
Ed Begley, Jr.
A forest of these trees is a spectacle too much for one man to see.
The mountains, the forest, and the sea, render men savage; they develop the fierce, but yet do not destroy the human.
At night, what you see is a city, because all you see is lights. By day, it doesn't look like a city at all. The trees out-number the houses. And that's completely typical of Seattle. You can't quite tell: is it a city, is it a suburb, is the forest growing back?
We are aware only of the empty space in the forest, which only yesterday was filled with trees.
The snake kills by squeezing very slowly. This is how the civilized world slowly, slowly pushes into the forest and takes away the world that used to be.
This land is your land, this land is my land, From California to the New York Island. From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters This land was made for you and me.
If you tell a joke in the forest, but nobody laughs, was it a joke?
A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
I walk slowly into myself, through a forest of empty suits of armor.
When we save the rain forest, the polar bear, and Al Gore, we should party so hard that Canada calls the cops on us for noise.
I grew up in Chicago, so I've always been a Bears fan. Dad used to take me to Bears games and Cubs games. My brother used to ride me over to Lake Forest College on his Honda Supersport and we'd watch the Bears practice. I remember those guys out there as monsters - they were the biggest things I've ever seen!
Starbucks goes to a great effort, and pays twice as much for its coffee as its competitors do, and is very careful to help coffee producers in developing countries grow coffee without pesticides and in ways that preserve forest structure.
If the tongue had not been framed for articulation, man would still be a beast in the forest.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.
Look at the bark of a redwood, and you see moss. If you peer beneath the bits and pieces of the moss, you'll see toads, small insects, a whole host of life that prospers in that miniature environment. A lumberman will look at a forest and see so many board feet of lumber. I see a living city.
I wanted to be a forest ranger or a coal man. At a very early age, I knew I didn't want to do what my dad did, which was work in an office.
The world's a forest, in which all lose their way; though by a different path each goes astray.
I grew up in a forest. It's like a room. It's protected. Like a cathedral... it is a place between heaven and earth.
The most appealing thing to me about food is combining and layering flavors, tastes, and textures. So the perfect sandwich has to be toasted.

Save the elephants, and then you save the forest - and then you save yourself.
Your soul is a dark forest. But the trees are of a particular species, they are genealogical trees.
The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one's own.
I'm kind of a gossip hound, but watching the media whip the small fires into giant forest fires so that they can cover the result is infuriating.
I am as frustrated with society as a pyromaniac in a petrified forest.
