Quote of the Day
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
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.
A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith
I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.
Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree.
George H. W. Bush
Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death.
The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
Saint Teresa of Avila
I said to the almond tree, 'Friend, speak to me of God,' and the almond tree blossomed.
Even as a kid, I was a businessman. I figured out that if you plucked all the berries off my neighbor's tree and smashed them up, they made a Nickelodeon Gak-type consistency. I sold them to all the neighborhood kids and made stacks of quarters. Of course, the berries were poisonous, and I got in all types of trouble.
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
We are sinful not only because we have eaten of the Tree of Knowledge, but also because we have not yet eaten of the Tree of Life. The state in which we are is sinful, irrespective of guilt.
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.
Lord save us all from old age and broken health and a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
