A Quote by unknown on contentment, dreams, heart, hope, life, love, quiet, seasons, sharing, and world

On the days that are summer sweet and full of a thousand dreams, I will love you. On the days when thunder and rain come dashing against our hopes, I will love you. On the days when we share a quiet world of contentment, I will love you. On all the days, through all the seasons of our lives, I will give you my heart . . . I will give you my love.

A Quote by unknown on birds, god, home, life, questions, and seasons

The question, "Which is the happiest season of life?" was asked of an aged man. And he replied: "When spring comes, and in the soft air the buds are breaking on the trees, and they are covered with blossoms, I think, 'How beautiful is spring'; and when summer comes and covers the trees with its heavy foliage, and singing birds are among the branches, I think, 'How beautiful is summer.' When autumn loads them with golden fruit, and their leaves bear the gorgeous tint of frost, I think, 'How beautiful is autumn.' And when it is severe winter, and there is neither foliage nor fruit, then I look up through the leafless branches as I never could until now, and see the stars shine in God's home."

A Quote by unknown on beauty, blessings, christmas, confidence, courage, day, evil, faith, future, good, harmony, heart, hope, joy, lies, men, nations, peace, reason, seasons, spirit, strength, sympathy, understanding, victory, work, and world

Let us pray that strength and courage abundant be given to all who work for a world of reason and understanding, that the good that lies in every man's heart may day by day be magnified, that men will come to see more clearly not that which divides them, but that which unites them, that each hour may bring us closer to a final victory, not of nation over nation, but of man over his own evils and weaknesses, that the true spirit of this Christmas season - it's joy, its beauty, its hope, and above all its abiding faith - may live among us, that the blessings of peace be ours - the peace to build and grow, to live in harmony and sympathy with others, and to plan for the future with confidence.

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on emptiness, language, seasons, and words

Last season's fruit is eaten And the fullfed beast shall kick the empty pail. For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice.

The true beloveds of this world are in their lover's eyes lilacs opening, ship lights, school bells, a landscape, remembered conversations, friends, a child's Sunday, lost voices, one's favorite suit, autumn and all seasons, memory, yes, it being the earth and water of existence, memory.

A Quote by Tom Spencer on earth, expectation, garden, good, motherhood, seasons, and sharing

All gardens, even the most native and naturalistic, benefit from the hand of an artful pruner. In this season where the garden is poised for the green flood of springtime, remember that our gardens are co-creations, shared with mother earth. And like any good mother, she expects you to tidy up your room. Now get clipping!
