Great one Jonathan.  If we are shifting to tree quotes, I love Churchill's 

"...the lone [some sources say "solitary"] tree, if it grows at all, grows 
strong."  

I imagine it was a metaphor for Britain, the island nation, standing alone 
after the fall of France in 1940, but I don't have the exact time frame for 
the quote.

  Another goodie from George B.S.

  "Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man
  manages his affairs as well as a tree does."
