garden

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.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)

A Quote by Thomas Archer Hirst on change, garden, life, museums, and society

10th August 1851: On Tuesday evening at Museum, at a ball in the gardens. The night was chill, I dropped too suddenly from Differential Calculus into ladies' society, and could not give myself freely to the change. After an hour's attempt so to do, I returned, cursing the mode of life I was pursuing; next morning I had already shaken hands, however, with Diff. Calculus, and forgot the ladies....

A Quote by Thomas á Kempis on angels, garden, god, heaven, and virtue

You are a man, not God; you are human, not an angel. How can you expect to remain always in a constant state of virtue, when this was not possible even for an angel of heaven, nor for the first man in the Garden?

A Quote by Teresa Watkins on curiosity, day, garden, god, heart, joy, justice, life, peace, thought, wonder, work, and world

Finding what brings peace and joy to your heart is important after a hard day at work, or just living in our intense world. Walking through your garden at the end of the day can rejuvenate you. I wonder if God, Allah, Jehovah, Shiva, Gaia or whatever Supreme Being you have come to know, looks down on the Garden that He or She created with all the different varieties of life and "oohs and aahs "? It is a curious thought, but I think so.

A Quote by Teresa Watkins on choice, garden, and plants

Every garden is unique with a multitude of choices in soils, plants and themes. Finding your garden theme is as easy as seeing what brings a smile to your face.

Scents bring memories, and many memories bring nostalgic pleasure. We would be wise to plan for this when we plant a garden.
