2. "I sat alone in that stupid forest asking God to tell me what to do."
- Quote by Edwina Gateley
5. "I asked God to help me understand the story of the forest and what it means to be a tree in that story."
- Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life
6. "I’ve often thought of the forest as a living cathedral, but this might diminish what it truly is. If I have understood Koyukon teachings, the forest is not merely an expression or representation of sacredness, nor a place to invoke the sacred; the forest is sacredness itself. Nature is not merely created by God; nature is God. Whoever moves within the forest can partake directly of sacredness, experience sacredness with his entire body, breathe sacredness and contain it within himself, drink the sacred water as a living communion, bury his feet in sacredness, touch the living branch and feel the sacredness, open his eyes and witness the burning beauty of sacredness"
- Richard Nelson, The Island Within
7. "This forest silence improves anyone."
- Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
8. "No genuine book has a first page. Like the rustling of a forest, it is begotten God knows where, and it grows and it rolls, arousing the dense wilds of the forest until suddenly, in the very darkest, most stunned and panicked moment, it rolls to its end and begins to speak with all the treetops at once."
- Quote by Boris Pasternak
9. "But when Zarathustra was alone, he addressed his heart thus: Can it really be possible? This old holy man in his forest still hasn’t received any notice that God is dead!"
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Selections)/Also sprach Zarathustra (Auswahl): A Dual-Language Book
