“I'm planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.”
Andrea Koehle Jones, The Wish Trees

Charles Darwin
“The affinities of all the beings of the same class have sometimes been represented by a great tree.I believe this simile largely speaks the truth. The green and budding twigs may represent existing species; and those produced during former years may represent the long succession of extinct species. At each period of growth all the growing twigs have tried to branch out on all sides, and to overtop and kill the surrounding twigs and branches, in the same manner as species and groups of species have at all times overmastered other species in the great battle for life. The limbs divided into great branches, and these into lesser and lesser branches, were themselves once, when the tree was young, budding twigs; and this connection of the former and present buds by ramifying branches may well represent the classification of all extinct and living species in groups subordinate to groups. Of the many twigs which flourished when the tree was a mere bush, only two or three, now grown into great branches, yet survive and bear the other branches; so with the species which lived during long-past geological periods, very few have left living and modified descendants. From the first growth of the tree, many a limb and branch has decayed and dropped off; and these fallen branches of various sizes may represent those whole orders, families, and genera which have now no living representatives, and which are known to us only in a fossil state. As we here and there see a thin straggling branch springing from a fork low down in a tree, and which by some chance has been favoured and is still alive on its summit, so we occasionally see an animal like the Ornithorhynchus or Lepidosiren, which in some small degree connects by its affinities two large branches of life, and which has apparently been saved from fatal competition by having inhabited a protected station. As buds give rise by growth to fresh buds, and these, if vigorous, branch out and overtop on all sides many a feebler branch, so by generation I believe it has been with the great Tree of Life, which fills with its dead and broken branches the crust of the earth, and covers the surface with its ever-branching and beautiful ramifications.”
Charles Darwin

George Gordon Byron
“Sorrow is knowledge: they who know the most must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth, the Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.”

Robert G. Ingersoll
“When I speak of God, I mean that god who prevented man from putting forth his hand and taking also of the fruit of the tree of life that he might live forever; of that god who multiplied the agonies of woman, increased the weary toil of man, and in his anger drowned a world—of that god whose altars reeked with human blood, who butchered babes, violated maidens, enslaved men and filled the earth with cruelty and crime; of that god who made heaven for the few, hell for the many, and who will gloat forever and ever upon the writhings of the lost and damned.”
Robert G. Ingersoll, Some Mistakes of Moses

within your mind I live to trace.
Your thought’s speed in thunder’s glory,
lightening my being with dream’s story.
I embrace the tree carrying your name
Your unspoken wish : the heart of fame.”

Brynn Myers
“Cat knew she'd arrived in Gaia's realm once she saw the Tree of Life, the foundation for all that was above and below.... The Tree of Life, no matter what religion one embraced, was a symbol of consanguinity. It was the universal representation of all that exists. Its network of connections matched that of a forest of aspen trees. Everything was interconnected and all of the roots led back to one source - the creators of all life.”
Brynn Myers, The Echoed Life of Jorja Graham

Brynn Myers
“The end is also the beginning. In order to arrive at your destiny, you must first accept the path that lies ahead. It is paved with loss, betrayal, and sorrow, but the circle is not at its end You must continue on until you find your true center and your peace.”

“A lifetime of eating at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil had produced a vision of saints and sinners. My heart ached to embark on a journey of liberation and taste of the Tree of Life where saint and sinner are one in love. Every saint has a story, and all sinners have glorious pages yet to be written.”
R.J. Blizzard, Incarnate: The Incredible Journey of Edward Mayus

Kresley Cole
“She’d told me an Empress could fashion wood into whatever shapes she liked; in my pocket was a wedding ring for Aric that I’d painstakingly crafted.

I’d figured the band would need to be as resilient as metal, so I’d chosen one of the strongest trees in the world: lignum vitae. Latin for wood of life.”
Kresley Cole, Arcana Rising

“Kabbalah' ni sayansi ya Mti wa Uzima wa Milele wa Bustani ya Edeni au 'The Tree of Life of the Garden of Eden' katika mbingu ya nne, ambayo ni ramani ya ulimwengu na roho ya mwanadamu; au Sayansi ya Mungu, uchawi wa kujua 99% ya siri ya uumbaji wa Mungu.”
Enock Maregesi

Gérard de Nerval
“Για μας όμως, που έχουμε γεννηθεί σε μέρες επαναστάσεων και καταιγίδων, όπου έχουν γίνει θρύψαλα όλα τα πιστεύω - για μας που το πολύ πολύ μεγαλώσαμε μ' αυτήν την αόριστη πίστη που αρκείται σε ορισμένους εξωτερικούς τύπους και που η αδιάφορη προσχώρηση σ' αυτήν είναι ίσως περισσότερο ένοχη απ' την ασέβεια και την αίρεση, - είναι πολύ δύσκολο, όταν αισθανόμαστε την ανάγκη της, να ανοικοδομήσουμε το μυστηριακό οικοδόμημα που οι αθώοι και οι απλοί έχουν βαθιά χαραγμένη τη μορφή του στις καρδιές τους. "Το δέντρο της γνώσεως δεν είναι το δέντρο της ζωής!" Παρ' όλ' αυτά, μπορούμε άραγε ν' αποβάλουμε από το πνεύμα μας ό,τι καλό ή ολέθριο έχουν ενσταλλάξει σ' αυτό τόσες ευφυείς γενεές; Η άγνοια δεν διδάσκεται.”
Gérard de Nerval, Αυρηλία [Aurelia]

“Synchronicities then can be said are the product of focused thought which appear as patterns repeating in time. These wheels of time or gears of life then, can only record synchronicites as they occur by consciously manifesting and observing the patterns of behaviour from which they were created.”
L.J. Vanier

“The world citizen is a small leaf on the tree of life.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Enock Maregesi
“Kuwepo kwa Mti wa Uzima wa Milele katika Bustani ya Edeni (pamoja) na Mti wa Maarifa ya Mema na Mabaya inamaanisha, Adamu na Hawa walikuwa hai kiroho mpaka walipokula tunda la mti wa katikati ambapo hali yao ya maisha ilibadilika. Adamu na Hawa walikufa lakini hawakufa – walikufa baadaye kabisa. Hii inamaanisha kwamba (haya ni mawazo yangu tu) mtu anapokufa anakuwa amekula tunda la mti wa katikati, litakalomwezesha kuendelea kuishi katika hali nyingine ya maisha ambayo sisi hatuijui.”
Enock Maregesi

“We are the Guardians of the Tree of Life. We have been given the blessing and honour to protect it and to help others to taste its fruits with love and compassion. The Tree of Life teaches us to carry and share “Love” and only “Love”. And so,the light of Love should shine through our eyes. Arrogance, Pride, Anger, Hatred, Criticism, Lust, Envy and Jealousy is a heavy burden to carry on our shoulder. They are the enemies of truth and are the most dangerous inner diseases of the heart and with such disease we will be prevented from entering paradise on the Day of Judgment.

Sometimes among us, we may encounter many challenging disagreements and difficulties. And to overcome those problems or to bring any change for good, we have to use our greatest weapon of “Love” because only Love can conquer the enemy of truth. Love is the only force of change and transformation. Love can penetrates the driest heart releasing river of compassion and forgiveness. Let love and only love be the instrument of change.”
Ricky Saikia
