Woods
 
  The nunneries of silent nooks, the murmured longing of the wood.
Lowell.    
  1
  In the woods, too, man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and, at what period soever of life, is always a child. In the woods is perpetual youth. Within these plantations of God a decorum and sanctity reign, a perennial festival is dressed, and the guest sees not how he should tire of them in a thousand years. In the woods we return to reason and faith.
Emerson.
