Timber

Famous quotes containing the word timber:

    Typography is not only a technology but is in itself a natural resource or staple, like cotton or timber or radio; and, like any staple, it shapes not only private sense ratios but also patterns of communal interdependence.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    Green springs the tree, hemp grows, the wag is wild,
    But when they meet, it makes the timber rot;
    It frets the halter, and it chokes the child.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)

    The very timber and boards and shingles of which our houses are made grew but yesterday in a wilderness where the Indian still hunts and the moose runs wild.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
