We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree.
A good sacrifice is one that is not necessarily sound but leaves your opponent dazed and confused.
General principles... are to the facts as the root and sap of a tree are to its leaves.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
As winter strips the leaves from around us, so that we may see the distant regions they formerly concealed, so old age takes away our enjoyments only to enlarge the prospect of the coming eternity.
Only those within whose own consciousness the sun rise and set, the leaves burgeon and wither, can be said to be aware of what living is.
Joseph Wood Krutch
He only half dies who leaves an image of himself in his sons.
In life, when stuff happens the instinct is to close off your heart. By leaving your heart open, it leaves room for someone else to come in.
Bad human communication leaves us less room to grow.
Writings scatter to the winds blank checks in an insane charge. And were they not such flying leaves, there would be no purloined letters.

Every job leaves its residue, a bit of extra knowledge, a new skill-set.
Bromates are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, but officials are required to test for them only when water leaves a treatment plant.
Anger and hate against one we love steels our hearts, but contempt or pity leaves us silent and ashamed.
Edgar Rice Burroughs
Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves.

Once you accept, truly accept, that stuff will happen to you and there is nothing you can do about it, stress miraculously leaves your life.
The best history is but like the art of Rembrandt; it casts a vivid light on certain selected causes, on those which were best and greatest; it leaves all the rest in shadow and unseen.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
