“Remember that the Mighty Oak was once a nut like you!”
“Deep roots are not reached by the frost…”
“Quiet as a Wooden Indian.”
“Back when ships were made of wood, and men were made of iron..”
“Firewood warms you thrice. Once in the felling, once in the hewing, and once more when burned.”
Of course, these are all probably dumb as a stump and others that are much easier to nail…
