A Quote by Colin Wilson on defeat, garden, kindness, mind, and world

I have a strong antipathy to everything connected with gardens, gardening and gardeners. . . . Gardening seems to me a kind of admission of defeat. . . . Man was made for better things than pruning his rose trees. The state of mind of the confirmed gardener seems to me as reprehensible as that of the confirmed alcoholic. Both have capitulated to the world. Both have become lotus eaters and drifters.

A Quote by Colin Wilson on change, mind, power, and world

The mind has exactly the same power as the hands: not merely to grasp the world, but to change it.
