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

Chvalabohu is a Slovak expression for Thank God. This one is located on the mountain pass of the Branisko mountain range. Branisko stretches from north to south. And at this point, the mountain is intersected by the first class road leading from west to east. This road was once crowded with cars, today it is almost empty. From time to time through here passes a lonely car. Almost 100 meters below the surface leads a highway tunnel, almost five kilometres long.
When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.
~ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
~ John Muir
We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea.
~ C. JoyBell C.
The Sun is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. About three-quarters of the Sun's mass consists of hydrogen; the rest is mostly helium.
The Sun is roughly middle aged and has not changed dramatically for four billion years, and will remain fairly stable for another four billion years. However, after hydrogen fusion in its core has stopped, the Sun will undergo severe changes and become a red giant. It is calculated that the Sun will become sufficiently large to engulf the current orbits of Mercury, Venus, and possibly Earth.
The enormous effect of the Sun on the Earth has been recognized since prehistoric times, and the Sun has been regarded by some cultures as a deity.
I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.
~ John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
~ Albert Camus
Knowledge would be fatal. It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful.
~ Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
What a pity every child couldn't learn to read under a willow tree...
~ Elizabeth George Speare, The Witch of Blackbird Pond
A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

I realise there's something incredibly honest about trees in winter, how they're experts at letting things go.
~ Jeffrey McDonald

I was surprised, as always, be how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt.
The world was suddenly rich with possibility.
