Excerpts from "The Tree Folk" by Henry Turner Bailey, 1925

"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."

We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
— Paulo Friere
