trees in winter in Antibes

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity . . . and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” ― William Blake

‘These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased.” –Rainer Maria Rilke

“Look: the trees exist; the houses we dwell in stand there stalwartly.  Only we pass by it all, like a rush of air.  And everything conspires to keep quiet about us, half out of shame perhaps, half out of some secret hope.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies

“To dwellers in a wood, almost every species of tree has its voice as well as its feature.” ― Thomas Hardy, Under the Greenwood Tree
