When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art.
The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.
The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky.
A sure cure for seasickness is to sit under a tree.
A tree is an incomprehensible mystery.
I looked up my family tree and found out I was the sap.
Taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It is an insult to creation not to experience it fully. Temperance is wickedness.
The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
Saint Teresa of Avila
You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different.
We smile at the ignorance of the savage who cuts down the tree in order to reach its fruit; but the same blunder is made by every person who is over eager and impatient in the pursuit of pleasure.
William Ellery Channing
I think that the leaf of a tree, the meanest insect on which we trample, are in themselves arguments more conclusive than any which can be adduced that some vast intellect animates Infinity.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as subject matter.
Know your priorities and identify the five powerful action steps that you intend to take to move your initiatives forward each day. If you go to a tree with an ax and take five whacks at the tree every day, it doesn’t matter if it’s an oak or a redwood; eventually, the tree has to fall down.
If a tree dies, plant another in its place.
You must grow like a tree, not like a mushroom.
Janet Erskine Stuart
If a fan comes up and it is a middle-aged lady, it is probably from ‘Prime’; if it is a younger girl, it is probably from when I guest-starred on ‘One Tree Hill.’ And if it is, like, a skateboard kid or a hipster kid, I can tell they are ‘How to Make It’ fans.
I was really young when I started on ‘One Tree Hill,’ and the encouragement from my friends and family has been crucial in my development as an actress. I’m also continuously surprised and humbled by the kindness and generosity of the fans.
I feel like – and maybe you’re going to think I’m crazy for saying this – ‘Vampire Diaries’ has crazy fans, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ has crazy fans, but I swear to you, I have never met crazier fans than ‘One Tree Hill”s.
I did one or two plays at school. Once I played a tree, so I never thought I would be a good actor.
‘One Tree Hill’ really had an impact on my life. It was the first time I left my house and my family in New York and went to a small town in North Carolina. It was the most incredible experience for me.
My dad has done a bit of research on our family tree, and we can trace it quite far back. My dad believes he has traced us back to being a great-great-great-great-great-great cousin of Wellington.
TV is like high school because you go into these series, and the people that work there have been doing it for seven years, like ‘One Tree Hill,’ so you are going into what is already a family – if you are accepted by that family, then it’s fantastic fun.
I think in any father-son relationship, there’s going to be times you say, ‘Well, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.’
Times, Far, Fall
The condom has saved so many lives, and it’ll save so many more lives. We really owe a great deal to the rubber tree.
When I was a child, I was living in the housing projects of Philadelphia. I didn’t even have a Christmas tree.
It is remarkable how closely the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man.
Henry David Thoreau
Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off.
A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
Wise, Fool, Sees
There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are science and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.
But I am a blasted tree; the bolt has entered my soul; and I felt then that I should survive to exhibit what I shall soon cease to be – a miserable spectacle of wrecked humanity, pitiable to others and intolerable to myself.
Experience, Once, Insult
The blues is like a planet. It’s an enormous topic. You can’t ignore the impact that it has had and continues to have on the whole musical culture. It’s a tree that everyone is swinging from. Without it, I don’t know where I would be. It’s indelible and indispensable.
I said to the almond tree, ‘Friend, speak to me of God,’ and the almond tree blossomed.
Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections as leaves are to the life of a tree. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.
