"Trees have Souls. Let us stop to wonder a moment over this mystery."
"Sincerity is a cardinal virtue in the Tree world. Good trees are honest, frank, and unashamed of their past. They accept what befalls them and do the best they can. Trees take the favors Providence thrusts upon them and look as cheerful as possible."
Henry Turner Bailey, The Tree Folk
From its beginning the earth is a spiritual as well as a physical reality. -Thomas Berry
