Trees quotes and quotations

Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.
Bill Vaughan

He plants trees to benefit another generation.
Caecilius Statius

Train up a fig tree in the way it should go, and when you are old sit under the shade of it.
Charles Dickens

It was the noise Of ancient trees falling while all was still Before the storm, in the long interval Between the gathering clouds and that light breeze Which Germans call the Wind's bride.
Charles Godfrey Leland

This is the forest primeval.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Trees like to have kids climb on them, but trees are much bigger than we are, and much more forgiving.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.

I think that I shall never see
a billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.
Ogden Nash

He that plants trees loves others beside himself.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
Joyce Kilmer

There's nothing that keeps its youth,
So far as I know, but a tree and truth.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

Trees, though they are cut and lopped, grow up again quickly, but if men are destroyed, it is not easy to get them again.

I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.
Willa Cather

As the poet said, 'Only God can make a tree' -- probably because it's so hard to figure out how to get the bark on.
Woody Allen

You should go to a pear tree for pears, not to an elm.
Publilius Syrus

He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit.
Sir Walter Scott

Either make the tree food, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
Saint Bernard

Fragrant o'er all the western groves The tall magnolia towers unshaded.
Maria Brooks

The place is all awave with trees, Limes, myrtles, purple-beaded, Acacias having drunk the lees Of the night-dew, fain headed, And wan, grey olive-woods, which seem The fittest foliage for a dream.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The shad-bush, white with flowers, Brightened the glens; the new leaved butternut And quivering poplar to the roving breeze Gave a balsamic fragrance.
William Cullen Bryant

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

Oh, leave this barren spot to me! Spare, woodman, space the beechen tree!
Thomas Campbell

The forest laments in order that Mr. Gladstone may perspire.
Sir Randolph Henry Spencer Churchill

No tree in all the grove but has its charms, Though each its hue peculiar.
William Cowper

The scarlet of the maples can shake me like a cry, Of bugles going by.
William Bliss Carman

I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.
Willa Sibert Cather

As by the way of innuendo Lucus is made a non lucendo.
Charles Churchill

Some boundless contiguity of shade.
William Cowper

You'd scarce expect one of my age To speak in public on the stage; And if I chance to fall below Demosthenes or Cicero, Don't view me with a critic's eye, But pass my imperfections by. Large streams from little fountains flow, Tall oaks from little acorns grow.
David Everett

I think that I shall never see A poem as lovely as a tree. . . . . Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree.
Ben Jonson

I think that I shall never scan A tree as lovely as a man. . . . . A tree depicts divinest plan, But God himself lives in a man.
Joyce Kilmer

Care is taken that trees do not grow into the sky.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Where is the pride of Summer,--the green prime,-- The many, many leaves all twinkling?--three On the mossed elm; three on the naked lime Trembling,--and one upon the old oak tree! Where is the Dryad's immortality?
Thomas Hood

Plant no other tree before the vine.

It is not growing like a tree In bulk, doth make man better be; Or standing long an oak, three hundred year, To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere: A lily of a day Is fairer far in May, Although it falls and die that night-- It was the plant and flower of Light.
Ben Jonson
