A Quote by John Donne on christ, death, discovery, home, joy, lies, love, music, paradise, saints, sermons, soul, and yielding

Since I am coming to that holy room Where, with thy choir of saints for evermore I shall be made thy music, as I come I tune the instrument here at the door, And what I must do then, think here before. Whilst my physicians by their love are grown Cosmographers, and I their map, who lie Flat on this bed, that by them may be shown That this is my southwest discovery, PER FRETUM FEBRIS, by these straits to die, I joy that in these straits I see my west; For though their currents yield return to none, What shall my west hurt me? As west and east In all flat maps (and I am one) are one, So death doth touch the resurrection. Is the Pacific Sea my home? Or are The eastern riches? Is Jerusalem? Anyan, and Magellan, and Gibraltar, All straits, and none but straits, are ways to them, Whether where Japhet dwelt, or Cham, or Shem. We think that Paradise, and Calvary, Christ's cross, and Adam's tree, stood in one place; Look, Lord, and find both Adams met in me; As the first Adam's sweat surrounds my face, May the last Adam's blood my soul embrace. So, in his purple wrapp'd receive me, Lord, By these his thorns give me his other crown; And as to others' souls I preached thy word, Be this my text, my sermon to mine own: "Therefore, that he may raise, the Lord throws down."

John Donne (1572 - 1631)

A Quote by John D. Sedding on belief, day, dreams, fiction, garden, home, paradise, weather, and world

There be delights that will fetch the day about from sun to sun and rock the tedious year as in a delightful dream . . . For a garden is Arcady brought home. It is man's bit of gaudy make-believe his well-disguised fiction of an unvexed Paradise . . . a world where gayety knows no eclipse and winter and rough weather are held at bay.

A Quote by Jim Nollman on art, facts, happiness, life, paradise, perception, simplicity, and path

Like William Morris, Joe Hollis asks us to perceive paradise gardening as a juncture where artfulness directly serves life. In fact, we might go so far as to define this paradise as the place where art is indistinguishable from life, and where simplicity is codified as the best path for achieving happiness.
