Mighty of purpose and stalwart of limb, Clove they a path through the forest so dim, Forward, adventuring, knowing no fears, Honour and praise to the old pioneers.

It is not so much for its beauty 
that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, 
as for that subtle something, 
that quality of air that emanation from old trees, 
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. 
~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~
