Famous quotes containing the words upright, fossil and/or trees:

    He who is upright in his way of life and free from sin.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8 B.C.)

    The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history, stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book, to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly, but living poetry like the leaves of a tree, which precede flowers and fruit,—not a fossil earth, but a living earth; compared with whose great central life all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The very dew seemed to hang upon the trees later into the day than usual, as on the sides of mountains.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
