Nothing to do but make the trip; the how of it is not important, so that the trip is made.” ~ Mark Twain

    The cuckoo through the April rain
    Calls once again.” ~ Mathilde Blind

    Are plump and juicy fine,
    But sweeter far as wise men know
    Spring from the woodland vine.
    No need for bowl or silver spoon,
    Sugar or spice or cream,
    Has the wild berry plucked in June
    Beside the trickling stream.
    One such to melt at the tongue’s root,
    Confounding taste with scent,
    Beats a full peck of garden fruit:
    Which points my argument.” ~ Robert Graves

Over here, the baryn’s estate, out there, the hills that hug the known world close and imply a world at beyond. She could never come up with the edge of a world, because it always kept going on beyond. She moved the center of the world as she walked. The world was balanced on her head.” ~ Gregory Maguire

    Hums with a louder concert. When the wind
    Sweeps the broad forest in its summer prime,

    The keys of some great organ, ye give forth
    The music of the woodland depths, a hymn
    Of gladness and of thanks.” ~ William C. Bryant

Careful not to make the slightest movement or sound hoping that your scent won’t suddenly waft his way. That’s when you’ll know for sure and appreciate deeply what bow-hunting is all about.” ~ Fred Bear

    Wearing white for Eastertide.Now, of my threescore years and ten,

    And take from seventy springs a score,
    It only leaves me fifty more.And since to look at things in bloom
    Fifty springs are little room,
    About the woodlands I will go
    To see the cherry hung with snow.” ~ A. E. Housman

This is the best part of these men’s farms, yet to this their warranty-deeds give no title.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
  52. “Here hills and vales, the woodland and the plain Here earth and water seem to strive again, Not chaos-like together crushed and bruised, But, as the world, harmoniously confused: Where order in variety we see, And where, though all things differ, all agree.” ~ Alexander Pope

  57. “In the spangled sky, the rainbow, the woodland hung with diamonds, the sward sown with pearly dew, the rosy dawn, the golden clouds of even, the purple mountains, the hoary rock, the blue boundless main, Nature’s simplest flower, or some fair form of laughing child or lovely maiden, we cannot see the beautiful without admiring it.” ~ Thomas Guthrie

What will you give me for a dream?” ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery

I don’t think he got it.” ~ Ilona Andrews

(View from Windermere in the Lake District)” ~ Susan Branch
  65. “[V]ariety of climate should always go with stability of abode…. an Englishman’s house is not only his castle; it is his fairy castle. Clouds and colours of every varied dawn and eve are perpetually touching and turning it from clay to gold, or from gold to ivory. There is a line of woodland beyond a corner of my garden which is literally different on every one of the three hundred and sixty-five days. Sometimes it seems as near as a hedge, and sometimes as far as a faint and fiery evening cloud.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
