Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
Orison Swett Marden
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Having contemplated this admirable grove, I proceeded towards the shrubberies on the banks of the river, and though it was now late in December, the aromatic groves appeared in full bloom.
