Famous quotes containing the words volcanic, belt and/or forests:

    Each of us, even the lowliest and most insignificant among us, was uprooted from his innermost existence by the almost constant volcanic upheavals visited upon our European soil and, as one of countless human beings, I can’t claim any special place for myself except that, as an Austrian, a Jew, writer, humanist and pacifist, I have always been precisely in those places where the effects of the thrusts were most violent.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    Now John wore clothing of camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 3:4.

    The forests are held cheap after the white pine has been culled out; and the explorers and hunters pray for rain only to clear the atmosphere of smoke.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
