garden

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on garden and memory

Footfalls echo in the memory Down the passage which we did not take Towards the door we never opened Into the rose garden.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)

A Quote by Tom Spencer on earth, expectation, garden, good, motherhood, seasons, and sharing

All gardens, even the most native and naturalistic, benefit from the hand of an artful pruner. In this season where the garden is poised for the green flood of springtime, remember that our gardens are co-creations, shared with mother earth. And like any good mother, she expects you to tidy up your room. Now get clipping!

A Quote by Tom Clothier on garden, people, philosophy, plants, and work

I think that most people want the word garden to be a noun which describes a place that you have set aside for your plants, so that the word gardening would be a verb that describes what you are doing when you work in your 'garden.' In my philosophy, garden is a verb; it is what you do. And, gardening is a noun that describes not what you did, but what you got when you gardened.

A Quote by Tom Clothier on beauty, charm, confidence, conversation, friendship, garden, meetings, needs, people, plants, pleasure, reward, and success

To garden, you open your personal space to admit a few, a great many, or thousands of plants which exude charm, pleasure, beauty, oxygen, conversation, friendship, confidence, and other rewards should you succeed in meeting their basic needs. This is why people garden. It can be easy but challenging, and the rewards are priceless.

A Quote by Tim Smit on arrogance, garden, and nature

A garden is a symbol of man's arrogance, perverting nature to human ends . . . and humans are part of nature . . . a perverse dilemma!

If a garden require it, now trench it ye may, one trench not a yard, from another go lay; Which being well filled with muck by and by, to cover with mould, for a season to lie.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on absence, architecture, clarity, garden, literature, music, painting, paradise, poetry, religion, soul, and world

The many great gardens of the world, of literature and poetry, of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden. If you don't want paradise, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on achievement, art, balance, earth, extremism, garden, labor, life, magic, nature, peace, pleasure, practice, spirituality, work, world, and path

The garden reconciles human art and wild nature, hard work and deep pleasure, spiritual practice and the material world. It is a magical place because it is not divided. The many divisions and polarizations that terrorize a disenchanted world find peaceful accord among mossy rock walls, rough stone paths, and trimmed bushes. Maybe a garden sometimes seems fragile, for all its earth and labor, because it achieves such an extraordinary delicate balance of nature and human life, naturalness and artificiality. It has its own liminality, its point of balance between great extremes.

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.
