Famous quotes containing the word forests:

    What forests of laurel we bring, and the tears of mankind, to those who stood firm against the opinion of their contemporaries!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The great pines stand at a considerable distance from each other. Each tree grows alone, murmurs alone, thinks alone. They do not intrude upon each other. The Navajos are not much in the habit of giving or of asking help. Their language is not a communicative one, and they never attempt an interchange of personality in speech. Over their forests there is the same inexorable reserve. Each tree has its exalted power to bear.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Sprung from the West,
    He drank the valorous youth of a new world.
    The strength of virgin forests braced his mind,
    The hush of spacious prairies stilled his soul.
    His words were oaks in acorns; and his thoughts
    Were roots that firmly gript the granite truth.
    Edwin Markham (1852–1940)
