They say it's better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.
When you're doing exactly what you want to do, it's not tiring. You've been planting these seeds, and finally, you have a full garden in bloom; you're like, 'Oh, I just want to smell the flowers and play among the flowers all day.' That's what I'm doing. I'm playing among the flowers.
The best place to find God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
George Bernard Shaw
Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Prohibition didn't work in the Garden of Eden. Adam ate the apple.
Garden as though you will live forever.
My favorite hobby is being alone. I like to be alone. I also like dancing, fishing, playing poker sometimes and vegetable gardening - corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, I have a big garden every year.

A beginner must look on himself as one setting out to make a garden for his Lord's pleasure, on most unfruitful soil which abounds in weeds.

Saint Teresa of Avila

Roberto Burle Marx

I live alone, with cats, books, pictures, fresh vegetables to cook, the garden, the hens to feed.
Every time I imagine a garden in an architectural setting, it turns into a magical place. I think of gardens I have seen, that I believe I have seen, that I long to see, surrounded by simple walls, columns, arcades or the facades of buildings - sheltered places of great intimacy where I want to stay for a long time.
There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?
How can you be content to be in the world like tulips in a garden, to make a fine show, and be good for nothing.
We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest.
To dwell is to garden.
A kitten is in the animal world what a rosebud is in the garden.
The garden is growth and change and that means loss as well as constant new treasures to make up for a few disasters.
