Quotes by Jonathan Drori  (?)

“One species, Salix babylonica – the weeping willow – got its name from a mistranslation of Psalm 137: ‘By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down and wept, When we remembered Zion, Upon the willows in the midst of it, We hung our harps.”
Jonathan Drori, Around the World in 80 Trees:

“Successive layers overlap; the resulting gloom deters less shade-tolerant species from growing and makes beech forests, which lack shrubs close to the group, strangely quiet.”
Jonathan Drori, Around the World in 80 Trees

“As propagandists have always known, our wish to believe the unbelievable knows no bounds.
p. 142”
