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."

It is the duty of every cultured man or woman to read sympathetically the scriptures of the world. If we are to respect others' religions as we would have them respect our own, a friendly study of the world's religions is a sacred duty.
- Mahatma Gandhi
