germination

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on visit, contemplation, creation, germination, and gardening

I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green.

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864)

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on silence, winter, visitation, rain, bells, death, seeds, sprouting, germination, the visitor, and seasons

Once more I am the silent one
who came out of the distance
wrapped in cold rain and bells:
I owe to earth's pure death
the will to sprout.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)
