„In the desert a fountain is springing,
In the wide waste there still is a tree,
And a bird in the solitude singing,
Which speaks to my spirit of thee.“

—  George Gordon Byron English poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement 1788 - 1824
Stanzas to Augusta (1816), reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„The word witch is related to the root of the word "willow," a very flexible tree.“

—  Starhawk American author, activist and Neopagan 1951
Context: The word witch is related to the root of the word "willow," a very flexible tree. Since ancient times witches have been known as those who can bend or shape fate. We twist the energies. The idea of witch became synonymous with wise woman, and with others who were herbalists and healers and keepers of the old traditions after the advent of Christianity. We were the ones who really knew the land and knew what grew there, and how to use it.

„In Spring all trees become pregnant“

—  Vitruvius Roman writer, architect and engineer -80 - -15 pred n. l.
Context: In Spring all trees become pregnant, and they are all employing their natural vigor in the production of leaves and of the fruits that return every year. The requirements of that season render them empty and swollen, and so they are weak and feeble because of their looseness of texture. This is also the case with women who have conceived. Their bodies are not considered perfectly healthy until the child is born. Chapter IX "Timber" Sec. 1

„My heart is like the willow
That bends, but never breaks.
It sighs when summer jilts her,
It sings when April wakes.“

—  Yip Harburg American song lyricist 1896 - 1981
Context: My heart is like the willow That bends, but never breaks. It sighs when summer jilts her, It sings when April wakes. So you, who come a-smiling With summer in your eyes, Think not that your beguiling Will take me by surprise. My heart's prepared for aching The moment you take wing. But not, my friend, for breaking While there's another spring. "Irreverent Heart"
