A Quote by William Cowper on blessings, courage, design, failure, god, grace, judgment, mercy, plants, providence, saints, skill, and trust

God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. Deep in unfathomable mines Of never failing skill He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will. Ye fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face.

William Cowper (1731 - 1800)

A Quote by Wendell Berry on acceptance, experience, garden, plants, power, and time

If you grow a garden you are going to shed some sweat, and you are going to spend some time bent over; you will experience some aches and pains. But it is in the willingness to accept this discomfort that we strike the most telling blow against the power plants and what they represent.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A Quote by W. S. Merwin on awareness, culture, evolution, force, garden, guidance, life, people, plants, time, water, and world

In the time that I have been acquainted with this region I have become increasingly aware of it as a testament of water, the origin and guide of its contours and gradients and of all the lives - the plants and small creatures, and the culture - that evolved here. That was always here to be seen, of course, and the recognition has forced itself, in one form or other, upon people in every part of the world who have been directly involved with the growing of living things. The gardener who ignores it is soon left with no garden.

W. S. Merwin (1927 -)

A Quote by Vivian Elisabeth Glyck on desires, good, moderation, nature, plants, water, and wisdom

Follow the wisdom provided by nature. Everything in moderation - sunlight, water, nutrients. Too much of a good thing will topple your structure. You can't harvest what you don't sow. So plant your desires, gently nurture them, and they will be rewarded with abundance.

A Quote by Vivian Elisabeth Glyck on birds, control, emotion, garden, life, energy, losing, love, plants, relationships, and time

Many things love to come and live off your plants, including bacteria, bugs, birds, and bunnies. If you don't control them, entire crops can be ruined. The result of your careful cultivation, in your garden and in your life, can be lost to predators in a short time. . . . Take a look at your life, what toxic relationships, substances and emotions are feeding on your energy and taking away from what you have to give to others. Eliminate them.
