It has also gained weight." ~Charlton Morias‬

Remember your roots
Enjoy the view." ~Ilan Shamir

"Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness." ~Kahlil Gibran
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
~ Joyce Kilmer, "Trees," 1914 ~
I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.
~ Ogden Nash, "Song of the Open Road," 1933

"I am the heat of your hearth on the cold winter night, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits refreshing draught quenching your thirst as you journey on.

I am the beam that built your house, the board of your table, the bed in which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat.

I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, the shell of your coffin.

I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. I'm who pass by, listen to my prayer. Harm me not."

~Anon author of Portuguese origin

"Trees of the forest, you know my soul!
As envy dictates, the crowd praises and blames;
But you know me well, you have seen me often,
Alone in your depths, gazing and dreaming.
You know the stone where a scarab beetle scampers,
A humble drop of water falling from flower to flower,
A cloud, a bird can occupy me a whole day,
Contemplation fills my heart with love..."
~Victor Hugo, Contemplations

Getting Real:

‪"Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough. Take your stand, speak up and refuse to let others hurt you. Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them. You don’t have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgments. Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be. Or let them walk away if they choose. They can’t harm you either way; it’s their understanding that is faulty, not yours." ~Emotional Filmtricks

"Give yourself time to be sad, frustrated, and angry. Give yourself time to heal, accept, and to grow. Time doesn’t erase anything, but it can provide you with enough space to be able to breathe again. And then one day you wake up and your heart has a little bit of sunshine in it. And day by day people offer you pieces of their hearts to help remake your own. Allow yourself to be where you are at, to feel what you are feeling, and to experience everything that means. And during this process, look and listen for that glimmer of hope. It is there, I promise. And it is waiting for you to see it. Because one of the most beautiful things about humans is their capacity to heal, grow, and survive. Facing it. That is how you get through." ~Jessica Jensen

Angie Karan Krezos Quotes


“Gratitude strengthens the heart. A grateful heart, is a grateful soul! When we have a grateful soul, we focus on the happiness and abundance present in our life, and this in turn attracts more abundance and joy towards us!” ~Angie Karan Krezos

“HAPPINESS is a choice. We all seem to be chasing it. It starts with us! True happiness is a gift that we give to ourselves, but it is also a gift that we pass to others. True happiness radiates from us and affects those around us…so the gift just keeps on giving! Every moment of the day there's a chance to create it. How? By the little and simplest ways. Doing things that we love, for our self and for others - nurtures and fulfills our soul. There will always be times of sadness in our life, we can't escape that, however, being optimistic with our thoughts at times like these we will bounce back from adversity. Most of all, be generous with your time, your compassion and your heart.” ~Angie Karan Krezos
