Tree Wisdom

Free people, remember this maxim:

we may acquire liberty,

but it is never recovered if it is once lost.


Jean-Jacques Rousseau

You forget that the fruits belong to all

and that the land belongs to no one.

  1. Thank you, WG! 🙂 You left the door open, so…
    Tree Wisdom: I am stumped. LoL “Don’t hurry your petrifaction.”
    Or how ’bout this — from my character, The Hanging Tree

    From its very beginnings, this big humble tree had maintained a neutral stance of equanimity, thus placing itself in the highest degree of servitude for mankind. It lived an amoral life. It could not judge between right and wrong. It had no such knowledge. It made no distinctions between the two. Time and again, the souls of the innocent and the guilty alike were welcomed into its inner sanctum.

We always appreciate your comments. Thank you for adding your insight to the conversation.
