Twig Quotations

A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong. - Tecumseh
A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong.

As the twig is bent the tree inclines.

The rainforest has an intense beauty that at times seems almost suffocating. The jungle is one twig short of impenetrable, and the greenery seems to crowd in on you with a sensation that has been described as akin to snow blindness.
Mark Barrowcliffe

I do not want to die... until I have faithfully made the most of my talent and cultivated the seed that was placed in me until the last small twig has grown.
Kathe Kollwitz

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.
Martin Luther
