The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
You can't hate the roots of a tree and not hate the tree. You can't hate Africa and not hate yourself.
Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.
A man doesn't plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.
All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven't done a thing. You are just talking.
The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.
When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art.
A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
I looked up my family tree and found out I was the sap.
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
The only thing that ultimately matters is to eat an ice-cream cone, play a slide trombone, plant a small tree, good God, now you're free.
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
Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death.
I said to the almond tree, 'Friend, speak to me of God,' and the almond tree blossomed.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith
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
It is the nature of the strong heart, that like the palm tree it strives ever upwards when it is most burdened.
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.
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.
Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life.
Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
