Gallows Tree quotes by Neil Gaiman
#1. I'll tell you something,' he said, as if he had said nothing that day. 'You're walking on gallows ground, and there's a rope around your neck and a raven-bird on each shoulder waiting for your eyes, and the gallows tree has deep roots, for it stretches from heaven to hell, and our world is only the branch from which the rope is swinging. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Gallows Tree quotes by Walter Raleigh
#2. The Wood is that that makes the gallows tree;
The Weed is that that strings the hangman's bag;
The Wag, my pretty knave, betokens thee. #Quote by Walter Raleigh
Gallows Tree quotes by K.J. Bishop
#3. Somewhere there are gardens where peacocks sing like nightingales, somewhere there are caravans of separated lovers traveling to meet each other; there are ruby fires on distant mountains, and blue comets that come in spring like sapphires in the black sky. If this is not so, meet me in the shameful yard, and we will plant a gallows tree, and swing like sad pendulums, never once touching. #Quote by K.J. Bishop
Gallows Tree quotes by Stewart Stafford
#4. When the condemned man saw the gallows, he knew the hypocrisy of life was over and that lies would serve him no more. He mumbled some defeated truths and left this world. The spectators were aghast and fascinated as the body swung and was still. They went about their business. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Gallows Tree quotes by James Dickey
#5. I had begun to suspect, however, that there is a poet - or a kind of poet - buried in every human being like Ariel in his tree, and that the people whom we are pleased to call poets are only those who have felt the need and contrived the means to release this spirit from its prison #Quote by James Dickey
Gallows Tree quotes by Martin O'Malley
#6. Reversing deforestation is complicated; planting a tree is simple. #Quote by Martin O'Malley
Gallows Tree quotes by Sasha Sokolov
#7. The rhododendron, growing every minute somewhere in Alpine meadows, are far happier than we, for they know neither love, nor hate, nor the Perillo slipper system, and they don't even die, since all nature, excepting man, is one undying, indestructible whole. If one tree somewhere in the forest perishes from old age, before dying, it gives the wind so many seeds, and so many new trees grow up around it on the land, near and far, that the wold tree, especially the rhododendron doesn't mind dying. [...] Only man minds and feels bitter, and burdened as he is with egotistical pity for himself. #Quote by Sasha Sokolov
Gallows Tree quotes by Stephen Wright
#8. Families were bunk, temporary and uneasy alliances of strangers who would hate each other less without the coercion of blood, the spiraling bonds of genetic ivy holding its victims fast to a blasted tree. #Quote by Stephen Wright
Gallows Tree quotes by Ronald Reagan
#9. If you've seen one redwood tree, you've seen them all #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Gallows Tree quotes by Charles Bukowski
#10. The priest read his thing. I didn't listen. There was the coffin. What had been Betty was in there. It was very hot. The sun came down in one yellow sheet. A fly circled around. Halfway through the halfway funeral two guys in working clothes came carrying my wreath. The roses were dead, dead and dying in the heat, and they leaned the thing up against a nearby tree. Near the end of the service my wreath leaned forward and fell flat on its face. Nobody picked it up. Then it was over. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Gallows Tree quotes by Mo Rocca
#11. One Christmas my father kept our tree up till March. He hated to see it go. I loved that. #Quote by Mo Rocca
Gallows Tree quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#12. One tree resisted for longer than the others. She was the oldest, and had seen a demon before, and knew that sometimes it wasn't about saving yourself, it was about holding out for long enough until someone else could save you. So she held out, and stretched for the stars even as her roots were being dug away, and she held out, and she sang to other trees even as her trunk was rotting out, and she held out, and she dreamt of the sky even as she was unmade. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Gallows Tree quotes by Frank O'Hara
#13. It is hard to believe when I'm with you that there can be anything as still
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o'clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles #Quote by Frank O'Hara
Gallows Tree quotes by Sloane Crosley
#14. I can't see the forest through the trees, except the trees are people. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Gallows Tree quotes by Jackson Pearce
#15. So, did you see that community center I was talking about?"
"What? Where?"
"We walked right past it, just before that grocery store. I mentioned it on the way to the city? You just drop in and take classes. They've got all sorts of stuff. I bet you can get a student rate, even."
"But I'm not a student - "
"You're young enough that they'll assume - "
" - and how am I supposed to find the time to take dance classes, now that I'm the dessert?"
"I'm starting to really regret using that metaphor," Silas says, grinning. "And let me explain something, Rosie." He takes a swig of the coffee and presses his lips together, searching for words. "I'm from a long, long, long, long line of woodsmen. My brothers are all supertalented. They all built their own rooms. For god's sake, Lucas built a freaking wooden hot tub in his bedroom with wooden monkeys pouring water into it."
"Don't ask. Anyway, I can do some woodworking. I know my way around the forest, I can handle an ax better than most, I can make a tree grow where nothing else will, I can live off berries and hunt for my food, and I've known about the Fenris since I could crawl. I'm a woodsman, for all intents and purposes. But that doesn't mean I live for it any more than the fact that you're good at hunting means you have to live for that. So maybe breaking out of the hunting lifestyle for a few hours here and there will help you figure out if it's really for you or not."
I shak #Quote by Jackson Pearce
Gallows Tree quotes by J.M. Barrie
#16. Peter measures you for your tree as carefully as for a suit of clothes: the only difference being that the clothes are made to fit you, while you have to be made to fit the tree. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Gallows Tree quotes by Gary McCord
#17. He's in the mold of a Tom Watson, in that he'll hit the ball in the trees and undaunted go it there, flail it out and make something out of it. #Quote by Gary McCord
Gallows Tree quotes by Deepak Chopra
#18. For nearly a hundred years, we have known that the material world is an illusion. Everything that seems solid - a rock, a tree, your body - is actually 99.999% empty space. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Gallows Tree quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#19. Do you get the feeling that they're talking about someone else other than an article?"
Kami stared at her fork, lying forlornly askew on her plate. "I don't know what you could mean! You are talking crazy!"
" They are talking about boys," Dad told Tomo and Ten. " I believe your mother may have concerns about Kami and a Lynburn boy. Possibly in a tree. Potentially k-i-s-s-i-n-g. I couldn't say. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Gallows Tree quotes by William Goldman
#20. Hello there," Inigo hollered when he could wait no more.
The man in black glanced up and grunted.
"I've been watching you."
The man in black nodded.
"Slow going," Inigo said.
"Look, I don't mean to be rude," the man in black said finally, "but I'm rather busy just now, so try not to distract me."
"I'm sorry," Inigo said.
The man in black grunted again.
"I don't suppose you could speed things up," Inigo said.
"If you want to speed things up so much," the man in black said, clearly quite angry now, "you could lower a rope or a tree branch or find some other helpful thing to do. #Quote by William Goldman
Gallows Tree quotes by Morena Baccarin
#21. You can't throw a rock without a comic book character falling out of a tree. #Quote by Morena Baccarin
Gallows Tree quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#22. If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening the ax. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Gallows Tree quotes by Libba Bray
#23. The ladies pass the timee with gossip and hearsay. This is what they have in place of freedom- gime and gossip. Their lives are small and careful. I do not wish to live this way. I should like to make my mark. To venture opinions that may not be polite or even correct but are mine nonetheless. If I am to be hanged for anything, I should like to feel that I go to the gallows on my own strength. #Quote by Libba Bray
Gallows Tree quotes by Richard Ford
#24. It is no loss to mankind when one writer decides to call it a day. When a
tree falls in the forest, who cares but the monkeys? #Quote by Richard Ford
Gallows Tree quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#25. It's not easy is it? Being a great man's son. You'd thought that would come with all kinds of advantages - with borrowed admiration, and respect. But it's only as easy as it is for the seeds of a great tree, trying to grow in its choking shadow. Not many make it to the sunlight for themselves. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Gallows Tree quotes by Timothy Findley
#26. Ede had been pregnant not quite the full term: eight months, two weeks, four days. She had lapsed into an extended silence - partly because she was still in mourning - still enraged and afraid of speech. And partly, too, because the child itself had taken up dreaming in her belly - dreaming and, Ede was certain, singing. Not singing songs a person knew, of course. Nothing Ede could recognize. But songs for certain. Music - with a tune to it. Evocative. A song about self. A song about place. As if a bird had sung it, sitting in a tree at the edge of a field. Or high in the air above a field. A hovering song. Of recognition. #Quote by Timothy Findley
Gallows Tree quotes by William Penn
#27. The tallest Trees are most in the Power of the Winds, and Ambitious Men of the Blasts of Fortune. #Quote by William Penn
Gallows Tree quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#28. No one should be allowed to stop in one place any longer than necessary. A man isn't a tree, and being settled in one place is his misfortune. It saps his courage, breaks his confidence. When a man settles down somewhere, he agrees to any and all of its conditions, even the disagreeable ones, and frightens himself with the uncertainty that awaits him. Change to him seems like abandonment, like a loss of an investment: someone else will occupy his domain, and he'll have to begin again. Digging oneself in marks the real beginning of old age, because a man is young as long as he isn't afraid to make new beginnings. If he stays in the same place, he has to put up with things, or take action. If he moves on, he keeps his freedom; he's ready to change places and the conditions imposed on him. #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Gallows Tree quotes by Matt Barr
#29. Not everyone who sells Christmas trees believes in Santa Claus. #Quote by Matt Barr
Gallows Tree quotes by Elisabeth Murdoch
#30. Your trees must be tended; if you can afford it, you owe it to them. I don't buy expensive plants; if I am extravagant in any way it is in the care of my garden. #Quote by Elisabeth Murdoch
Gallows Tree quotes by Rebecca Wells
#31. She walks barefoot into the humid night, moonlight on her freckled shoulders. Near a huge, live oak tree on the edge of her father's cotton fields, Sidda looks up into the sky. In the crook of the crescent moon sits the Holy Lady, with strong muscles and a merciful heart. She kicks her splendid legs like the moon is her swing and the sky, her front porch. She waves down at Sidda like she has just spotted an old buddy.
Sidda stands in the moonlight and lets the Blessed Mother love every hair on her six-year-old head. Tenderness flows down from the moon and up from the earth. For one fleeting, luminous moment, Sidda Walker knows there has never been a time when she has not been loved. #Quote by Rebecca Wells
Gallows Tree quotes by Wendell Berry
#32. In a time of disorder [Laertes] has returned to the care of the earth, the foundation of life and hope. And Odysseus finds him in an act emblematic of the best and most responsible kind of agriculture: an old man caring for a young tree. (pg. 123, The Body and the Earth) #Quote by Wendell Berry
Gallows Tree quotes by Son Eun-seo
#33. I want to be reborn as a tree; that way I can plant my roots down, never move and can never be separated from the ones I love. #Quote by Son Eun-seo
Gallows Tree quotes by C.S. Lewis
#34. But I remember more dearly autumn afternoons in bottoms that lay intensely silent under old great trees #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Gallows Tree quotes by Amy Tan
#35. The gnarled pine, I would have said, touch it. This is China. Horticulturalists around the world have come to study it. Yet no one has ever been able to explain why it grows like a corkscrew, just as no one can adequately explain China. But like that tree, there it is, old, resilient, and oddly magnificent. Within that tree are the elements in nature that have inspired Chinese artists for centuries: gesture over geometry, subtlety over symmetry, constant flow over static form.
And the temples, walk and touch them. This is China. Don't merely stare at these murals and statues. Fly up to the crossbeams, get down on your hands and knees, and press your head to the floor tiles. Hide behind that pillar and come eye to eye with its flecks of paint. Imagine that you are the interior decorator who is a thousand years in age. Start with a bit of Tibetan Buddhism, plus a dash each of animism and Taoism. A hodgepodge, you say? No, what is in those temples is an amalgam that is pure Chinese, a lovely shabby elegance, a glorious new motley that makes China infinitely intriguing. Nothing is ever completely thrown away and replaced. If one period of influence falls out of favor, it is patched over. The old views still exist, one chipped layer beneath, ready to pop through with the slightest abrasion.
That is the Chinese aesthetic and also its spirit. Those are the traces that have affected all who have traveled along China's roads. #Quote by Amy Tan
Gallows Tree quotes by Joanne McClean
#36. EvieS89: Maybe she's lonely and just wants a friend! ;-)
CharlieBoy88: No! Trust me, the chick is nuts! Lol! ;-)
EvieS89: *shakes head* Don't be mean!

CharlieBoy88: I mean seriously ... WTH?!? #Quote by Joanne McClean
Gallows Tree quotes by Brian Jacques
#37. Colder than the winter wind howling its dirge through the Southwest Forest.
Colder than the snow blanketing tree, rock and earth in its silent shroud.
Colder than ice that lay on water and hung in shards from branches and bushes.
Colder than these was the smile of Ferahgo the Assassin! #Quote by Brian Jacques
Gallows Tree quotes by Patrick Ness
#38. Even though it walked and talked, even though it was bigger than his house and could swallow him in one bite, the monster was still, at the end of the day, just a yew tree. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Gallows Tree quotes by Hope Jahren
#39. When building foliage, a tree must budget for each leaf individually and allocate for each position relative to the other leaves. A good business plan will allow our tree to triumph as the largest and longest-living being on your street. But it ain't easy, and it ain't cheap. The #Quote by Hope Jahren
Gallows Tree quotes by Joan Didion
#40. In Coffeeville, Miss., at 6 p.m., there was a golden light and a child swinging in it, swinging from a big tree, over a big lawn, back and forth in front of a big airy house. To be a white middle-class child in a small southern town must be on certain levels the most golden way for a child to live in the United States. #Quote by Joan Didion
Gallows Tree quotes by Amit Ray
#41. Hugging a tree, understanding the language of trees and sending loving kindness to trees will make you rich. Because it connects you to the source - the source of abundance. #Quote by Amit Ray
Gallows Tree quotes by Cate Tiernan
#42. He gave a hard smile and the oxygen in my lungs evaporated. "We
both know I'm not a gentleman."
"Yeah. Okay, let me out. I'm tired."
"There's something else," he said, and I groaned.
"What now?"
"This." He stepped closer to me, so close that the containers were
sandwiched between us. His eyes
looked down into mine, intent and golden, like a lion.
"Oh, no, you don't!" I hissed, dropping everything. I pushed hard
against his chest; it was like shoving
a tree.
"Yes," he said very softly, leaning down. "Yes, I do. #Quote by Cate Tiernan
Gallows Tree quotes by Alan Kay
#43. The tree of research must be fed from time to time with the blood of bean-counters, for it is its natural manure. #Quote by Alan Kay
Gallows Tree quotes by Joyce Kilmer
#44. Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree #Quote by Joyce Kilmer
Gallows Tree quotes by John Muir
#45. A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. #Quote by John Muir
Gallows Tree quotes by Derrick Jensen
#46. So many indigenous people have said to me that the fundamental difference between Western and indigenous ways of being is that even the most open-minded westerners generally view listening to the natural world as a metaphor, as opposed to the way the world really is. Trees and rocks and rivers really do have things to say to us. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Gallows Tree quotes by James Joyce
#47. Till tree from tree, tree among trees tree over tree become stone to stone, stone between stones, stone under stone for ever.
O Loud, hear the wee beseech of thees of each of these thy unlitten ones! Grant sleep in hour's time, O Loud!
That they take no chill. That they do ming no merder. That they shall not gomeet madhowiatrees.
Loud, heap miseries upon us yet entwine our arts with laughter low! #Quote by James Joyce
