Susan Fenimore Cooper
“What a noble gift to man are the forests! What a debt of gratitude and admiration we owe for their utility and their beauty!”
“Of the infinite variety of fruits which spring from the bosom of the earth, the trees of the wood are the greatest in dignity.”
“It is the peculiar nature of the forest, that life and death may ever be found within its bounds, in immediate presence of each other; both with ceaseless, noiseless advances, aiming at the mastery; and if the influences of the first be most general, those of the last are the most striking.”
Susan Fenimore Cooper, U.S. writer
(1813 - 1894)
