Famous quotes containing the words trees and/or cherry:

    Though trees turn bare and girls turn wives,
    We shall afford our costly seasons;
    There is a gentleness survives

    There is a loveliness exists,
    Preserves us, not for specialists.
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)

    I think it was your cherry pies.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
