A Quote by Ken Kesey on mystery, answers, garden, psychedelics, strange, and questions

The answer is never the answer.  What's really interesting is the mystery.  If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking.  I've never seen anybody really find the answer -- they think they have, so they stop thinking.  But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom.  The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.

Ken Kesey (1935 -)

Every little seed in time will flower
Plant the ones that lead me down the path towards really helping
I am the garden, but I'm also the gardener

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on desires, earth, garden, heart, prophets, secrets, and thought

When your heart becomes the grave of your secrets, that desire of yours will be gained more quickly. The prophet said that anyone who keeps secret his inmost thought will soon attain the object of his desire. When seeds are buried in the earth, their inward secrets become the flourishing garden.

A Quote by Yoshida Kenko on admiration and garden

Are we to look at cherry blossoms only in full bloom, the moon only when it is cloudless? To long for the moon while looking on the rain, to lower the blinds and be unaware of the passing of the spring - these are even more deeply moving. Branches about to blossom or gardens strewn with flowers are worthier of our admiration.

A Quote by William Somerset Maugham on drugs, garden, good, habits, mountains, promises, religion, women, and world

Marco Polo tells the tale of The Old Man in the Mountains and how he recruits new members to his Band of Assassins by means of drugs, beautiful women, lush gardens, and religious promises. The unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give up than the bad ones.
