"Poems and paintings are made by fools like me,
but only the energies can make a tree."
"Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit."
( Khalil Gibran )
There are two trees, each yielding its own fruit. One of them is negative....it grows from lack of
self-worth and its fruits are fear, anger, envy, bitterness, sorrow - and any other negative emotion.
Then there is the tree of positive emotions. Its nutrients include self-forgiveness and a correct self
concept. Its fruits are love, joy, acceptance, self-esteem, faith,
peace... and other uplifting emotions."
( Kathi's Garden )
"Time-honored, beautiful, solemn and wise.
Noble, sacred and ancient
Trees reach the highest heavens and penetrate the deepest secrets of the earth.
Trees are the largest living beings on this planet.
Trees are in communion with the spiritual and the material.
Trees guard the forests and the sanctified places that must not be spoiled.
Trees watch over us and provide us with what we need to live on this planet.
Trees provide a focal point for meditation, enlightenment, guidance and inspiration.
Trees have a soul and a spirit."
"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds.
A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy
reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."
( Basil )
"May my life be like a great hospitable tree,
and may weary wanderers find in me a rest."
( John Henry Jowett )
