My Favourite quote Number 1

DSC_4052

“To dwellers in a wood almost every species of tree has its voice as well as its feature.  At the passing of the breeze the fir-trees sob and moan no less distinctly than they rock; the holly whistles as it battles with itself; the ash hisses amid its quiverings; the beech rustles while its flat boughs rise and fall.  And winter, which modifies the note of such trees as shed their leaves, does not destroy its individuality.”

Excerpt From: Thomas Hardy. “Under the Greenwood Tree, or, the Mellstock quire; a rural painting of the Dutch school.”
