imagination

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 acceptance, existence, facts, freedom, imagination, learning, and life

Total freedom is never what one imagines and, in fact, hardly exists. It comes as a shock in life to learn that we usually only exchange one set of restrictions for another. The second set, however, is self-chosen, and therefore easier to accept.

Anne Lindbergh (1906 -)

A Quote by Alice Morse Earle on belief, contentment, exercise, future, garden, good, imagination, interest, life, people, and present

Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination. You are always living three, or indeed six, months hence. I believe that people entirely devoid of imagination never can be really good gardeners. To be content with the present, and not striving about the future, is fatal.
