Quote of the Day
Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Change is a continuous process. You cannot assess it with the static yardstick of a limited time frame. When a seed is sown into the ground, you cannot immediately see the plant. You have to be patient. With time, it grows into a large tree. And then the flowers bloom, and only then can the fruits be plucked.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.
I think that intelligence is such a narrow branch of the tree of life - this branch of primates we call humans. No other animal, by our definition, can be considered intelligent. So intelligence can't be all that important for survival, because there are so many animals that don't have what we call intelligence, and they're surviving just fine.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
What is a fish without a river? What is a bird without a tree to nest in? What is an Endangered Species Act without any enforcement mechanism to ensure their habitat is protected? It is nothing.
First I shake the whole Apple tree, that the ripest might fall. Then I climb the tree and shake each limb, and then each branch and then each twig, and then I look under each leaf.
When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all.
E. O. Wilson
You can't hate the roots of a tree and not hate the tree. You can't hate Africa and not hate yourself.
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Friendship is a sheltering tree.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The only time I can really relax is up a tree or somewhere outside. I love being outside.
The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It's a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.
The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Martin Luther King, Jr.
