C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • This is the forest primeval.
  • Longfellow.

  • Summer of winter, day or night,
  • The woods are an ever-new delight;
  • They give us peace, and they make us strong,
  • Such wonderful balms to them belong:
  • So, living or dying, I’ll take mine ease
  • Under the trees, under the trees.
  • R. H. Stoddard.
