A Quote by Dr. Alexis Carrel on achievement, body, garden, justice, maturity, mind, people, personality, personality, prayer, spirit, understanding, and words

Too many people regard prayer as a formalized routine of words, a refuge for weaklings, or a childish petition for material things. We sadly undervalue prayer when we conceive it in these terms, just as we should underestimate rain by describing it as something that fills the birdbath in our garden. Properly understood, prayer is a mature activity indispensable to the fullest development of personality - the ultimate integration of man's highest faculties. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assembly of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human reed its unshakable strengths.

A Quote by Dorothy Frances Gurney on angels, birds, earth, garden, god, heart, kiss, songs, and world

The Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And he set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the bird for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth.

A Quote by Doris Lessing on earth, garden, water, and wealth

The smell of manure, of sun on foliage, of evaporating water, rose to my head; two steps farther, and I could look down into the vegetable garden enclosed within its tall pale of reeds - rich chocolate earth studded emerald green, frothed with the white of cauliflowers, jeweled with the purple globes of eggplant and the scarlet wealth of tomatoes.

Doris Lessing (1919 -)
