Babies are necessary to grown-ups. A new baby is like the beginning of all things --wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete... babies are almost the only remaining link with nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

We can speak without voice to the trees and the clouds and the waves of the sea. Without words they respond through the rustling of leaves and the moving of clouds and the murmuring of the sea.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In solitude we are in the presence of mere matter (even the sky, the stars, the moon, trees in blossom), things of less value (perhaps) than a human spirit. Its value lies in the greater possibility of attention.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It would be a thousand pities if women wrote like men, or lived like men, or looked like men, for if two sexes are quite inadequate, considering the vastness and variety of the world, how should we manage with one only? Ought not education to bring out and fortify the differences rather than the similarities? For we have too much likeness as it is, and if an explorer should come back and bring word of other sexes looking through the branches of other trees at other skies, nothing would be of greater service to humanity; and we should have the immense pleasure into the bargain of watching Professor X rush for his measuring-rods to prove himself superior.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Uncle Rico: Napoleon, you know we can't afford the fun pack. What, do you think money grows on trees in this family? Take it back! And get some Pampers for you and your brother while you're at it.More [08/31/2005 12:08:00]

“I put quite a few trees in last autumn. A lot of silver birch and a couple of native trees - just generally doing gardening, putting plants in and hedges in. It takes quite a lot of time and I love it.”More [06/12/2006 12:06:00]
“We have meandering roads. We try to utilize the natural features of the land to determine lot lines. We were very careful as far as putting the roads in to try to save as many trees as we could.”More [07/09/2006 12:07:00]
“We generally get upset about any sort of invasive threat. The latest infestation in Carteret and Woodbridge is resulting in 16,000 to 17,000 trees coming down.”More [10/31/2006 12:10:00]
Tampa seemed like another world, with palm trees and the smell of oranges and tangerines in the air.More [11/04/2006 12:11:00]
When we distributed the paper and crayons, they were fighting over the blue crayon. Everyone wanted to start with the blue, and that was the water. One drawing shows the trees under water. I was really moved.More [12/11/2006 12:12:00]
Ofelia: My name is Ofelia. Who are you?
Pan: Me? I've had so many names. Old names that only the wind and the trees can pronounce. I am the mountain, the forest and the earth. I am... I am a faun. Your most humble servant, Your Highness.More [02/25/2007 12:02:00]
Dr. Jean Grey: Why do you need us?

Treebeard: They had voices of their own. Saruman! A wizard should know better!More [03/20/2007 12:03:00]
Elrond: If Aragorn survives this war, you will still be parted. If Sauron is defeated and Aragorn made king and all that you hope for comes true you will still have to taste the bitterness of mortality. Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time, Aragorn will die. And there will be no comfort for you, no comfort to ease the pain of his passing. He will come to death an image of the splendor of the kings of Men in glory undimmed before the breaking of the world. But you, my daughter, you will linger on in darkness and in doubt as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Here you will dwell bound to your grief under the fading trees until all the world is changed and the long years of your life are utterly spent.More [03/20/2007 12:03:00]
Aragorn: Gimli, lower your axe.
Legolas: They have feelings, my friend. The elves began it, waking up the trees, teaching them to speak.

[from the extended version]
Treebeard: I believe you will enjoy this next one, too. It is one of my own compositions. Ahem.

Come... back... to me, And say my land is... best.'More [03/20/2007 12:03:00]

[Evie is trying to bribe Rick into checking out the Oasis of Ahm Shere]
Evelyn: I think the bracelet is some sort of guide to the lost oasis of Ahm Shere.
Rick: Evy, I know what you're thinking and the answer is no. We just got home.
Evelyn: That's the beauty of it, we're already packed.
Rick: Why don't you just give me one good reason.
Evelyn: It's just an oasis. Darling. A beautiful, exciting, romantic oasis.
Rick: The kind with the white, sandy beach and the palm trees and the cool, clear, blue water and - we could have some of those big drinks with the little umbrellas.
Evelyn: Sounds good.
Rick: Sounds too good. What's the catch?
Evelyn: Supposedly it's the resting place of Anubis's army.
Rick: Ah, ya. see. I knew there's a catch. There's always a catch.More [03/25/2007 12:03:00]

Crysta: But how can you live without trees?
Zak: Easy.

[mockingly]
Lyle: Yes, bartender, I'll have two black russians and a white ape.
Narrator: A drink the venal Van de Groot would be begging to imbibe, if he only knew how close the white ape was at that very moment. Flying through the foliage, surveying the scenery, and swinging on through the trees with effortless ease.
George: [hits tree] Ow!More [12/10/2007 12:12:00]
Kevin McCallister: Why do we have to go to Florida? There's no Christmas trees in Florida.

Adele Corners: Will you tell me more about California?
Early Grayce: Yeah, I guess so. Let's see. One thing, people think faster out there on the account of all that warm weather. Cold weather makes people stupid. That's a fact.
Adele Corners: I guess that explains why there's so many stupid people around here.
Early Grayce: It sure does. You know what else? You never have to buy no fruit on account it's all on the trees everywhere you turn. And they ain't got no speed limits. I hear your first month's rent is free, state law. So I'm thinking till we get settled we'll just move around from month to month. How will that be with you, momma?
Adele Corners: What are we going to do out there, Early?
Early Grayce: By God the first thing we're going to do is get us ! a couple of six-packs of Lucky Lager and we're going to climb up to that famous Hollywood sign. We're going to howl at the moon, goddamn it.
[howls]
Early Grayce: Yeah, just like that.
Adele Corners: I heard once that there ain't nothing on that old moon except some little golf balls the astronauts left behind.
Early Grayce: Nah, that ain't right. That's bullshit. The government be sending people there all the time. Just don't want us to know about it.More [05/21/2008 12:05:00]
Dr. Kate McTiernan: [Kate is under hypnosis, reliving her escape from Casanova] I hear him, whispering.
Alex Cross: [about Casanova] What does he say?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: I can feel his mouth on my ear, his breath. He tells me that he loves me.
Alex Cross: Tell me about his face. Tell me about his eyes. His mouth.
Dr. Kate McTiernan: [Kate's breathing begins to quicken] He has no face. A mask! He always wears a mask!
Alex Cross: What kind of mask? What does it look like?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: [her breathing slows] It changes. I can't show him that I hate him.
Alex Cross: But you escape. What do you see when you escape?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: I don't know. I'm just running. And my legs... are heavy from the drugs. And I'm lost. I'm running through hallways and there are all these rooms, I don't know where to turn!
[becomes panicked, starts to cry]
Dr. Kate McTiernan: He's behind me!
Alex Cross: He's not behind you Kate, you get away. How? How do you get out?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: [Kate's breathing is becoming more rapid, as she becomes more panicked] Light. Light! The light and the sun.
Alex Cross: Do you see a barn?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: No!
Alex Cross: A house?
Dr. Kate McTiernan: No! No! There's nothing! Just the light. It hurts my eyes. And then the trees, the trees again.
[starts to sob, and begins to hyperventilate]

[first lines]
Narrator: Once upon this same earth, beneath this same sun, before you, before the ape and the elephant, before the wolf, the bison and the whale, before the mammoth and the mastodon, in the time of the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs were of two kinds. Some had flat teeth, and fed upon the leaves of trees, and those with sharp teeth, for eating meat, preyed upon the leaf-eaters. Now it happened that the trees began to die out. The mighty beasts who seemed to rule the earth, were, in truth, ruled by the leaf. Out of desperation, some of the herds ventured out west, in search of the Great Valley, a land still lush and green. It was a journey toward life.More [06/28/2008 12:06:00]
The guy who owned that island was from Oregon and he decided that he wanted to have an Oregon feeling to it, so he planted pine trees all over the place!More [08/09/2008 12:08:00]
Henry Frankenstein:
Dangerous? Poor old Waldman. Have you never wanted to do anything that was dangerous? Where should we be if no one tried to find out what lies beyond? Have your never wanted to look beyond the clouds and the stars, or to know what causes the trees to bud? And what changes the darkness into light? But if you talk like that, people call you crazy. Well, if I could discover just one of these things, what eternity is, for example, I wouldn't care if they did think I was crazy.

Gabrielle Maple:
Petrified forest is a lot of dead trees in the desert that have turned to stone. Here's a good specimen.



Alan Squier:
So that was once a tree? Hmmm. Petrified forest, eh? Suitable haven for me. Well, perhaps that's what I'm destined to become, an interesting fossil for future study.

Cowardly Lion:
[singing] If I were king of the fore-e-e-est / Not queen, not duke, not prince / My regal robes of the fore-e-e-est / Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz / I'd command each thing, whether fish or fowl / With a r-r-ruff and a r-r-ruff, and a royal growl - R-R-Ruff! / As I click my heels / All the trees would kneel / And the mountains bow / And the bulls kowtow / And the sparrow would take wing / If I, if I were ki-i-i-i-ng! / The rabbits would show respect to me / The chipmunks genuflect to me / Though my tail would lash / I would show compash / For every underling / If I, if I were king / Just ki-i-i-i-ing!

Paule Manet:
Well, the way I got it, America's a great big country which is entirely populated by men who are misunderstood. No, not entirely.



Joe Butler:
Huh?



Paule Manet:
There are also the women who misunderstand them. If it isn't the wife, it is a girl who is out sitting under the apple tree.



Joe Butler:
What apple tree?



Paule Manet:
The good old apple tree. A lot of things must grow on trees - cigarettes and chocolate bars, nylon stockings, anything!

Julia Sturges:
Oh Richard, where did we miss out on each other? I beg your pardon, Sir. I put you down as a useless man, someone to lead a cotillion.



Richard Sturges:
After all, it was my major talent.



Julia Sturges:
I'm sorry, sorry about everything.



Richard Sturges:
We have no time to catalog our regrets. All we can do is pretend 20 years didn't happen. It's June again. You were walking under some Elm trees in a white muslin dress, the loveliest creature I ever laid eyes on. That summer, when I asked you to marry me, I pledged my eternal devotion. I would take it as a very great favor Julia, if you would accept a restatement of that pledge.

Cornelia Rayburn:
[reading the poem Ward wrote for the Beaver to recite at school] The Bear: I would like to be a bear, gay and happy free from care / That's the life like no other, climbing trees with my mother / Though they call me beast of rage, I've never put anything in a cage / Or set a trap since time's begun, or shot a human with a gun.

Bret:
Waco, I've never seen a man do so many things wrong. Have you ever been in a gulf hurricane?



Waco Williams:
Nope.



Bret:
Well, it's the big pine trees and the thick oak trees that get uprooted first. The palm trees are smart - they give with the wind.



Waco Williams:
That sounds like pretty good advice for trees.



Bret:
They live a long time.

Major Reeves:
By the way, sir, I meant to tell you, there are trees in this forest very similar to elm. And the elm piles of London Bridge lasted six hundred years.



Colonel Nicholson:
Six hundred years, Reeves?



Major Reeves:
Yes, sir.



Colonel Nicholson:
Six hundred years... That would be quite something.

Lt. Andy Anderson:
[finding Judy dead] The Bat.



Cornelia van Gorder:
Yes the Bat, he caught her at the head of the stairs. We saw him rushing down the stairs as we came out of our rooms. I hurled that


[a fireplace poker]



Cornelia van Gorder:
at him, I hit him I believe. 'I'm going to cover this place from attic to basement' you said, well what were you covering out there while that poor child was murdered, where were you?



Lt. Andy Anderson:
I saw a man outside on the grounds. I went out and hunted him, I hunted him among the trees so far as the brook down near the back road, then I lost him. After that I'd give my own life than let this happen to Judy, but I told you to stay in your rooms and lock your doors and stay there! What was she doing at the head of those stairs?



Dale Bailey:
That was my fault.



Cornelia van Gorder:
They heard a strange noise, heavy pounding in one of the rooms on the third floor, we all heard it.



Dale Bailey:
I wanted to see what it was, but Judy, she wouldn't let me go out there by myself,


[crying]



Dale Bailey:
I made her stay on the balcony!



Lt. Andy Anderson:
What about your new butler?



Cornelia van Gorder:
Oh he's in his room I suppose.

Hindu:
Don't be misled. There could be a thousand cannibals beneath those fronds and you wouldn't see one. It was among these very trees that the unfortunate Frenchman Maison was murdered in 1845.


[picks up a piece of cheese]



Hindu:
He was captured by the cannibals of the region and tied to the foot of a giant cocoa palm.


[begins cutting the cheese]



Hindu:
Then the savage chief cut him slowly, limb from limb, and then literally tore the half-severed head from the body. Maison was only 26. Cheese?

George Washington McLintock:
Becky! Come here. Somethin' I ought to tell you. Guess now's as good a time as any. You're going to have every young buck west of the Missouri around here tryin' to marry you - mostly because you're a handsome filly, but partly because I own everything in this country from here to there. They'll think you're going to inherit it. Well, you're not. I'm going to leave most of it to, well, to the nation really, for a park where no lumbermen'll cut down all the trees for houses with leaky roofs. Nobody'll kill all the beaver for hats for dudes nor murder the buffalo for robes. What I'm going to give you is a 500 cow spread on the Upper Green River. Now that may not seem like much, but it's more than we had, your mother and I. Some folks are gonna say I'm doin' all this so I can sit up in the hereafter and look down on a park named after me, or that I was disappointed in you - didn't want you to get all that money. But the real reason, Becky, is because I love you, and I want you and some young man to have what I had, because all the gold in the United States Treasury and all the harp music in heaven can't equal what happens between a man and a woman with all that growin' together. I can't explain it any better than that.

Shawn:
Well say something Phil. You like it, you hate it?



Phillip:
I don't know man, it's kinda gloomy.



Belle:
Oh no! Not you too! This is getting old.



Phillip:
I'm serious. It is a sunny hot day, so why's it so dark back here?



Shawn:
Seems to be the burning question, isn't it?



Belle:
Would you two stop, okay! It's shade! You know how trees create shade by blocking the sun by their many branches and leaves. Even you two nincompoops can grasp that subject!

Oliver Wendell Douglass:
Gentlemen, I'm surprised at you. The American farmer didn't get where he is today by celebrating Christmas with phony trees and wax popcorn, plastic candy canes. Gentlemen, to the American farmer Christmas is real. He goes out with ax in hand, chops down his own tree, brings it back, garlands it with strings of popcorn from his own corn crib, makes cider from his own apple trees. And when Christmas carols ring out in the still of the night, he looks up to the sky and says, 'I'm proud to be an American farmer on Christmas.'

Charlie Brown:

[begins to walk with Linus again]



Charlie Brown:
I just don't understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards and decorating trees and all that, but I'm still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed.
