The northern peoples, century after century, lived under one or other of the two great powers of the pine and the sea, both infinite.

Still the dark, green trees, or the dark, green waters jagged the dawn with their fringe or their foam. And whatever elements of imagination, or of warrior strength, or of domestic justice were brought down by the Norwegian or the Goth against the dissoluteness or degradation of the south of Europe were taught them under the green roofs and wild penetralia of the pine. (Quote by - John Ruskin)
