Hello Mary

A great site to go to for inspirational quotes is
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for.

Hey, I might be going off at a complete tangent but I have some time to
spare so I'll put my pennyworth in. If it were me, I would keep it simple.
Look for one common theme the crosses many genres. Trees; in advertising
Timberland boots, explain how the trees longevity and steadfastness are a
symbol for many companies, In literature the living forrest from The Hobbit,
In music I talk to the Trees (please find a better example than that:-) Etc

Hope this helps, it made me smile.
