Sonian Forest quotes by Jarod Kintz
#1. My penis burns. I guess I should stop trying to put out forest fires with it. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Sonian Forest quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#2. It's not a big deal, the way Dr. Marshall sees it. We do it every day. Kill the unborn to save the elderly. In the gold wash of the chapel, breathing her reasons into my ear, she asked, every time we burn a gallon of gas or an acre of rain forest, aren't we killing the future to preserve the present? The #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Sonian Forest quotes by Virginia Woolf
#3. If you stand a lantern under a tree every insect in the forest creeps up to it - a curious assembly, since though they scramble and swing and knock their heads against the glass, they seem to have no purpose - something senseless inspires them. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Sonian Forest quotes by Scott Westerfeld

Sonian Forest quotes by Li Bingbing
#5. I only started to understand the concept of "environmental protection" 14 years ago. I was an ambassador for a charity event, and the staff told me that the consumption of disposable chopsticks in China, per year, could result in the devastation of unimaginable acres of forest. #Quote by Li Bingbing
Sonian Forest quotes by Sally  Thorne
#6. If we leave my car here, Helene will know. She'll see it."
"Should we hide it under some branches in a forest? #Quote by Sally Thorne
Sonian Forest quotes by Elizabeth Kim
#7. Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve ... And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon. #Quote by Elizabeth Kim
Sonian Forest quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#8. It is in the nature of things to be lost and not otherwise. Think of how little has been salvaged from the compost of time of the hundreds of billions of dreams dreamt since the language to describe them emerged, how few names, how few wishes, how few languages even, how we don't know what tongues the people who erected the standing stones of Britain and Ireland spoke or what the stones meant, don't know much of the language of the Gabrielanos of Los Angeles or the Miwoks of Marin, don't know how or why they drew the giant pictures on the desert floor in Nazca, Peru, don't know much even about Shakespeare or Li Po. It is as though we make the exception the rule, believe that we should have rather than that we will generally lose. We should be able to find our way back again by the objects we dropped, like Hansel and Gretel in the forest, the objects reeling us back in time, undoing each loss, a road back from lost eyeglasses to lost toys and baby teeth. Instead, most of the objects form the secret constellations of our irrecoverable past, returning only in dreams where nothing but the dreamer is lost. They must still exist somewhere: pocket knives and plastic horses don't exactly compost, but who knows where they go in the great drifts of objects sifting through our world? #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Sonian Forest quotes by Carrie Ryan
#9. Habits die hard and absence doesn't stop my fingers from searching. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Sonian Forest quotes by Tui T. Sutherland
#10. No, way. There is a tree? In a forest? #Quote by Tui T. Sutherland
Sonian Forest quotes by Alana Beard
#11. Trees and soils can absorb carbon dioxide released by fossil fuel burning. It would be great to subsidize responsible farmers and forest managers. #Quote by Alana Beard
Sonian Forest quotes by Mason Cooley
#12. The tranquility of my room partakes too much of Forest Lawn. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Sonian Forest quotes by Michael Delaware
#13. Don't you see? You created this forest! It is your imagination that has given these trees the water to grow. It is your hopes that blazed a path through it. It is your dreams that give it the magic. All of this was created from within you! #Quote by Michael Delaware
Sonian Forest quotes by A.S. Peterson
#14. She chased the song like a hound fast upon a scent. She pursued it through a forest primeval: a dark land planted with musical staves and rests and grown thick with briars of annotation. On she went and on still until she caught sight of the song ahead of her, fleeting and sly. "I see it," she said aloud, though she didn't mean to. #Quote by A.S. Peterson
Sonian Forest quotes by Brian  Doyle
#15. So much held in a heart in a lifetime. So much held in a heart in a day, an hour, a moment. We are utterly open with no one, in the end -- not mother and father, not wife or husband, not lover, not child, not friend. We open windows to each but we live alone in the house of the heart. Perhaps we must. Perhaps we could not bear to be so naked, for fear of a constantly harrowed heart. When young we think there will come one person who will savor and sustain us always; when we are older we know this is the dream of a child, that all hearts finally are bruised and scarred, scored and torn, repaired by time and will, patched by force of character, yet fragile and rickety forevermore, no matter how ferocious the defense and how many bricks you bring to the wall. You can brick up your heart as stout and tight and hard and cold and impregnable as you possibly can and down it comes in an instant, felled by a woman's second glance, a child's apple breath, the shatter of glass in the road, the words 'I have something to tell you,' a cat with a broken spine dragging itself into the forest to die, the brush of your mother's papery ancient hand in a thicket of your hair, the memory of your father's voice early in the morning echoing from the kitchen where he is making pancakes for his children. #Quote by Brian Doyle
Sonian Forest quotes by R. Queen
#16. I sailed a sea of emotion,
to wander a forest of scars,
I am a dance of
Light and darkness,
A galaxy of shadow and stars #Quote by R. Queen
Sonian Forest quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#17. Despite my mum being from a small village in the middle of a forest, I'm not a country person. I don't like my bacon sandwich to be curiously snuffling at my fingers. But sometimes being police means holding your breath and fondling a pig. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Sonian Forest quotes by Douglas Smith
#18. She jumped out from hiding. "You killed me, you son of a bitch!"
The Windigo stopped. As its bulbous red eyes fell on her, it occurred to her that, even though she was dead, there might be fates that could befall her spirit she should probably try to avoid. Swallowing, she stepped back.
But the Windigo made no move toward her. Its voice was a thing of ice cracking in the middle of a frozen lake. "I have eaten your flesh already, child. Your spirit is of no use to me. I need fresh meat and hot blood." Turning away, it continued through the forest.
"What? That's it? Take my body, then forget about me?" she yelled after its retreating back. "Obviously a guy," she muttered. #Quote by Douglas Smith
Sonian Forest quotes by Jill Alexander Essbaum
#19. Bandaged. The wound is mortal and yet you do not die. That is its own impossible agony. But grief is not simple sadness. Sadness is a feeling that wants nothing more than to be sat with, held, and heard. Grief is a journey. It must be moved through. With a rucksack full of rocks, you hike through a black, pathless forest, brambles about your legs and wolf packs at your heels. The grief that never moves is called complicated grief. It doesn't subside, you do not accept it, and it never - it never - goes to sleep. This is possessive grief. This is delusional grief. This is hysterical grief. Run if you will, this grief is faster. This is the grief that will chase you and beat you. This is the grief that will eat you. #Quote by Jill Alexander Essbaum
Sonian Forest quotes by Annie Proulx
#20. The forest had many edges, like a lace altarpiece. #Quote by Annie Proulx
Sonian Forest quotes by Robert Frost
#21. Two roads diverged in a forest and I chose the one less traveled by and it made all the difference. #Quote by Robert Frost
Sonian Forest quotes by The Silver Elves
#22. The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known into the forest of the unknown, illuminated by the glow of the elves. #Quote by The Silver Elves
Sonian Forest quotes by Ernst Junger
#23. The forest fleer has been expelled from society, the anarch has expelled society from himself. He is and remains his own master in all circumstances. When he decides to flee to the forest, his decision is less an issue of justice and conscience for him than a traffic accident. He changes camouflage; of course, his alien status is more obvious in the forest flight, thereby making it the weaker form, though perhaps indispensable. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Sonian Forest quotes by Gene Stratton-Porter
#24. When they reached her she stood on the path holding a pair of moths. Her eyes were wide with excitement , her cheeks pink, her red lips parted, and on the hand she held out to them clung a pair of delicate blue-green moths, with white bodies, and touches of lavender and straw colour. All about her lay flower-brocaded grasses, behind a deep green background of the forest, while the sun slowly sifted gold from heaven to burnish her hair. Mrs. Comstock heard a sharp breath behind her.
Oh, what a picture!" Exulted Ammon over sher shoulder. "She is absolutely and altogether lovely! Id give a small fortune for that faithfully set on canvas! #Quote by Gene Stratton-Porter
Sonian Forest quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#25. A girl my age had been murdered in these woods and I'd seen her last terrified moments, watched her bleed to death in this forest. A life like mine had ended here, and it didn't matter how many times I'd seen deaths in movies, it wasn't the same, and I wasn't ever going to forget it. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Sonian Forest quotes by Hermann Hesse
#26. For a long time, he pondered his transformation, listened to the bird, as it sang for joy. Had not this bird died in him, had he not felt its death? No, something else from within him had died, something which already for a long time had yearned to die. Was it not this what he used to intend to kill in his ardent years as a penitent? Was this not his self, his small, frightened, and proud self, he had wrestled with for so many years, which had defeated him again and again, which was back again after every killing, prohibited joy, felt fear? Was it not this, which today had finally come to its death, here in the forest, by this lovely river? Was it not due to this death, that he was now like a child, so full of trust, so without fear, so full of joy? #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Sonian Forest quotes by Frances Ford Seymour
#27. Once the forest has been removed and the swamp starts being drained, that organic matter begins to oxidise and give off continuing emissions. It's sort of like the goose that keeps on giving. #Quote by Frances Ford Seymour
Sonian Forest quotes by Han Kang, The Vegetarian
#28. The innumerable trees she's seen over the course of all her life, the undulating forests that blanket the continents like a heartless sea, envelop her exhausted body and lift her up. Only fragments of cities, small towns and roads are visible, floating on the roof of the forest like islands or bridges, slowly being swept away somewhere, borne on those warm waves. There's no way for In-hye to know what on earth those waves are saying. Or what those trees she'd seen at the end of the narrow mountain path, clustered together like green flames in the early-morning half-light, had been saying. Whatever it was, there had been no warmth in it. Whatever the words were, they hadn't been words of comfort, words that would help her pick herself up. Instead they were merciless, and the trees that had spoken them were a frighteningly chill form of life. Even when she turned about on the spot and searched in all directions, In-hye hadn't been able to find a tree that would take her life from her. Some of the trees had refused to accept her. They'd just stood there, stubborn and solemn yet alive as animals, bearing up the weight of their own massive bodies. #Quote by Han Kang, The Vegetarian
Sonian Forest quotes by Loren Eiseley
#29. Man would not be man if his dreams did not exceed his grasp ... Like John Donne, man lies in a close prison, yet it is dear to him. Like Donne's, his thoughts at times overleap the sun and pace beyond the body. If I term humanity a slime mold organism it is because our present environment suggest it. If I remember the sunflower forest it is because from its hidden reaches man arose. The green world is his sacred center. In moments of sanity he must still seek refuge there ... If I dream by contrast of the eventual drift of the star voyagers through the dilated time of the universe, it is because I have seen thistledown off to new worlds and am at heart a voyager who, in this modern time, still yearns for the lost country of his birth. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Sonian Forest quotes by George Orwell
#30. So often like this, in lonely places in the forest, he would come upon something--bird, flower, tree--beautiful beyond all words, if there had been a soul with whom to share it. Beauty is meaningless until it is shared. #Quote by George Orwell
Sonian Forest quotes by George Harrison
#31. For the forest to be green, each tree must be green. #Quote by George Harrison
Sonian Forest quotes by Tash Aw
#32. Although harmony with nature is of considerable importance in planning a garden, it must never be allowed to obscure what lies at the heart of the design;the salvation of the human spirit. In creating a garden, we acquire, by force, a patch of land from the jungle; we mould it so that it becomes an oasis amid the wilderness. It is an endless struggle. Turn our backs for a moment and the darkness of the forest begins its insidious invasion of our tiny haven. The plants that we insert -- artificially, it must be noted, for no garden is a work of Mother Nature -- must not only provide shelter for the soul, they must be able to absorb and then disperse the creeping darkness of the jungle around us. The decorations do not merely adorn, they protect. They create a place where, at the end of our lives, we may find peace. #Quote by Tash Aw
Sonian Forest quotes by Ruth Pitter
#33. The lily in splendor, the vine in her grace,
The fox in the forest, all had their desire,
As then I had mine, in the place that was happy and poor. #Quote by Ruth Pitter
Sonian Forest quotes by Haruki Murakami
#34. Wrapped in the deep fragrance of the forest, I listen to the flapping of the birds' wings, to the stirring of the ferns. I'm freed from gravity and float up
just a little
from the ground and drift in the air. Of course I can't stay there forever. It's just a momentary sensation
open my eyes and it's gone. Still, it's an overwhelming experience. Being able to float in the air. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Sonian Forest quotes by Steven Pinker
#35. During a famine, the father and stepmother of Hansel and Gretel abandon them in a forest so that they will starve to death. The children stumble upon an edible house inhabited by a witch, who imprisons Hansel and fattens him up in preparation for eating him. Fortunately Gretel shoves the witch into a fiery oven, and "the godless witch burned to death in a horrible way." 41 • Cinderella's stepsisters, when trying to squeeze into her slippers, take their mother's advice and cut off a toe or heel to make them fit. Doves notice the blood, and after Cinderella marries the prince, they peck out the stepsisters' eyes, punishing them "for their wickedness and malice with blindness for the rest of their lives."

Snow White arouses the jealousy of her stepmother, the queen, so the queen orders a hunter to take her into the forest, kill her, and bring back her lungs and liver for the queen to eat. When the queen realizes that Snow White has escaped, she makes three more attempts on her life, two by poison, one by asphyxiation. After the prince has revived her, the queen crashes their wedding, but "iron slippers had already been heated up for her over a fire of coals.... She had to put on the red-hot iron shoes and dance in them until she dropped to the ground dead. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Sonian Forest quotes by Michael Delaware
#36. You can't lie in a magical forest! It will ruin all the magic! #Quote by Michael Delaware
Sonian Forest quotes by Christopher  Ketcham
#37. Overall, the cost to the Forest Service to prepare and administer the timer sales, to oversee the construction of the roads, to mitigate (in usually small ineffective ways) the damage to the landscape far outweighs any fiscal return. #Quote by Christopher Ketcham
Sonian Forest quotes by Chelsea Fine
#38. Does this mean I get to be part of the team?" She clapped her hands again.
"Yes," Nate said.
"No," Gabriel said at the same time.
"Duuuude," Nate said to Gabriel between his teeth. "I really want to talk to this Mr. Brooks guy."
"Fine." Gabriel sighed. "Let her help. I don't care. But if you die," Gabriel pointed at Heather, "or get cursed or something, that's your fault."
Heather nodded merrily, still clapping. "Yay, I'm part of the team."
"We're not a team," Gabriel said through gritted teeth.
Heather ignored him and looked at Nate. "I think we need a team name."
"Ooh! Good idea." Nate pointed a finger into the air. "How about Team Awesome?"
Heather wrinkled her nose. "Too vague. Team Super Secret Fountain Seekers?"
"Too specific." Nate shook his head. "Team Ash Guy Hunters?"
"Ashman." Heather shook her head. "Too hard to say."
Nate scoffed. "And 'Super Secret Fountain Seekers' is easy to say?"
Gabriel huffed and started walking toward the door. "You guys can stay here and pick a name and a Team Captain or whatever, but I'm going to find Mr. Brooks." He opened the door to leave, night falling on the forest around them.
Heather said, "Mr. Brooks doesn't open his door when it's dark outside." She shrugged. "So we're going to have to wait until tomorrow after school."
Frustrated, Gabriel closed the cabin door on the setting sun. "Tomorrow then."
"Perfect." Nate nodded, shifting his eyes from Scarle #Quote by Chelsea Fine
Sonian Forest quotes by Douglas Malloch
#39. Good Timber

by Douglas Malloch

The tree that never had to fight
For sun and sky and air and light,
But stood out in the open plain
And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king
But lived and died a scrubby thing.

The man who never had to toil
To gain and farm his patch of soil,
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man
But lived and died as he began.

Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.

Where thickest lies the forest growth,
We find the patriarchs of both.
And they hold counsel with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife.
This is the common law of life. #Quote by Douglas Malloch
