The coniferous forests of the Yosemite Park, and of the Sierra in general, surpass all others of their kind in America, or indeed the world, not only in the size and beauty of the trees, but in the number of species assembled together, and the grandeur of the mountains they are growing on.
Copy
The creation of a... The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
Copy

The more I see... The more I see of deer, the more I admire them as mountaineers.

Copy
The most striking thing... The most striking thing to me about human space flight and my own personal experience is that I've seen dramatic changes on Earth.

Copy
The practical importance of... The practical importance of the preservation of our forests is augmented by their relations to climate, soil and streams.

The redwood is one... The redwood is one of the few conifers that sprout from the stump and roots, and it declares itself willing to begin immediately to repair the damage of the lumberman and also that of the forest-burner.
Copy
The redwood is the... The redwood is the glory of the Coast Range. It extends along the western slope, in a nearly continuous belt about ten miles wide, from beyond the Oregon boundary to the south of Santa Cruz, a distance of nearly four hundred miles, and in massive, sustained grandeur and closeness of growth surpasses all the other timber woods of the world.
Copy
The secret of realizing... The secret of realizing the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment of existence is: to live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius!

The time will soon past when you could be content to live concealed int he woods like timid deer!

Copy

Copy

Copy
When one's dead, one's... When one's dead, one's dead... This squirrel will become earth all in his time. And still later on, there'll grow new trees from him, with new squirrels skipping about in them. Do you think that's so very sad?
Copy
Yet, as more and... Yet, as more and more clothes came off, it went beyond just animal passion. It was sweet and wonderful at the same time. When I looked into his eyes, I could see without a doubt that he loved me more than anyone else in the world, that I was his salvation, the same way that he was mine. I'd never expected my first time to be in a cabin in the woods, but I realized the place didn't matter. The person did. With someone you loved, you could be anywhere, and it would be incredible.
