Famous quotes containing the words tree and/or island:

    A single fiber does not make a thread, nor a single tree a forest.
    Chinese proverb.

    An island always pleases my imagination, even the smallest, as a small continent and integral portion of the globe. I have a fancy for building my hut on one. Even a bare, grassy isle, which I can see entirely over at a glance, has some undefined and mysterious charm for me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
