Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
People who try to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree.

Iíve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: A rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.
Differences are the roots without which the tree of liberty, the sap of creation and of civilization, dries up.
You get tragedy where the tree, instead of bending, breaks.
Everything tends towards reconciliation as a stone falls, as the tree falls, and in the end that is the completion which at the beginning would have seemed the ruin.
T. S. Eliot
No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.
Love is like a tree: it grows by itself, roots itself deeply in our being and continues to flourish over a heart in ruin. The inexplicable fact is that the blinder it is, the more tenacious it is. It is never stronger than when it is completely unreasonable.
