Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose like that of the green deep woods. Here grow the wallflower and the violet. The squirrel will come and sit upon your knee, the logcock will wake you in the morning. Sleep in forgetfulness of all ill. Of all the upness accessible to mortals, there is no upness comparable to the mountains. John Muir

The groves were God’s first temple.  William Cullen Bryant

The breeze – the breath of God – is still, And the mist upon the hill Shadowy – shadowy – yet unbroken, Is a symbol and a token, – How it hangs upon the trees, A mystery of mysteries!Edgar Allen Poe

When I went south into the mountains I was seeking a back of beyond. …with an inborn taste for the wild and romantic, I yearned for a strange land and a people that had the charm of originality. …I wanted to enjoy a free life in the open air, the thrill of exploring new ground, the joys of the chase, and the…game of matching my woodcraft against the forces of nature, with no help from servants or hired guides.Horace Kephart

Leave it as it is. you can not improve on it. the ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it.Teddy Roosevelt

But to find what you are not looking for…that is to be an observer.John Burroughs

The one had leaves of dark green that beneath were as shining silver, and from each of his countless flowers a dew of silver light was ever falling, and the earth beneath was dappled with the shadows of his fluttering leaves.J.R.R. Tolkein

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.Robert Frost

Every tree deserves special admiration.John Muir
