Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper, That we may record our emptiness. - Kahlil Gibran, Arab poet, writer

I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in Summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. - Joyce Kilmer, American journalist and poet
I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. -John Muir, American naturalist

All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man... the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports. The trees are God's great alphabet: With them He writes in shining green Across the world His thoughts serene. -Leonora Speyer, American poet and violinist Lovely Thoughts for Lovely People Just Like You
