A Quote by Thomas Moore on individuality, relationships, sex, and time

The intimacy in sex is never only physical. In a sexual relationship we may discover who we are in ways otherwise unavailable to us, and at the same time we allow our partner to see and know that individual. As we unveil our bodies, we also disclose our persons.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on garden, love, and time

I have a garden of my own, Shining with flowers of every hue; I loved it dearly while alone, But I shall love it more with your: And there the golden bees shall come, In summer time at the break of morn, And wake us with their busy hum Around the Siha's fragrant thorn.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on garden, heart, learning, mystery, paradise, and soul

We may have to learn again the mystery of the garden: how its external characteristics model the heart itself, and how the soul is a garden enclosed, our own perpetual paradise where we can be refreshed and restored.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on day, plants, secrets, sleep, and timidity

Plants that wake when others sleep. Timid jasmine buds that keep their fragrance to themselves all day, but when the sunlight dies away let the delicious secret out to every breeze that roams about.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on heart, hope, humility, peace, and world

I knew, by the smoke that so gracefully curl'd Above the green elms, that a cottage was near; And I said, "If there's peace to be found in the world, A heart that was humble might hope for it here."
