They allow themselves to bend and be blown with the wind. They understand the power of letting go. Those trees and those branches that try too hard to stand up strong and straight are the ones that break. Now is not the time for you to be strong, Julia, or you, too, will break.”

— Julia Butterfly Hill, who spent two years living in a giant redwood tree to keep in from being cut down
