A Quote by Anne Raver on birds, garden, and world

To me, the garden is a doorway to other worlds; one of them, of course, is the world of birds. The garden is their dinner table, bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries.

A Quote by Anne Raver on commitment, community, garden, people, and plants

Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.

A Quote by Anne Raver on friendship, garden, imagination, and path

A garden is like the self. It has so many layers and winding paths, real or imagined, that it can never be known, completely, even by the most intimate of friends.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on cats, garden, and world

The world has different owners at sunrise . . . Even your own garden does not belong to you. Rabbits and blackbirds have the lawns; a tortoise-shell cat who never appears in daytime patrols the brick walls, and a golden-tailed pheasant glints his way through the iris spears.

Anne Lindbergh (1906 -)

A Quote by Andrew Marvell on garden and wilderness

I have a garden of my own, But so with roses overgrown, And lilies, that you would it guess to be a little wilderness.

A Quote by Andrew Marvell on garden, happiness, kindness, mind, pleasure, and thought

Meanwhile the mind, from pleasure less, Withdraws into its happiness; The mind, that ocean where each kind Does straight its own resemblance find; Yet it creates, transcending these, Far other worlds, and other seas; Annihilating all that's made To a green thought in a green glade . . . Such was that happy garden-state, . . .

A Quote by André Kostelanetz on birds, colors, garden, inspiration, life, plants, play, study, and surprises

We found Matisse living in a small house, with a magnificent, sweeping view beyond his vegetable garden. In one room there was a cage with a lot of fluttering birds. The place was covered with paintings, most of them obviously new ones. I marveled at his production and I asked him, "What is your inspiration? "I grow artichokes, he said. His eyes smiled at my surprise and he went on to explain: "Every morning I go into the garden and watch these plants. I see the play of light and shade on the leaves and I discover new combinations of colors and fantastic patterns. I study them. They inspire me. Then I go back to the studio and paint.
