Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
— Henry David Thoreau

The lofty pine is oftenest shaken by the winds; High towers fall with a heavier crash; And the lightning strikes the highest mountain.
Horace pines quote

I wish to bean inspector of volcanoes.I want to study cloud formationsand memorize the windand learn by heart the habits ofthe ponderosa pine.
— Edward Abbey

To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
— Helen Keller

I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.
— pines quotation by Hamlin Garland
