It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.
B. C. Forbes
The flower which is single need not envy the thorns that are numerous.
Garden as though you will live forever.
By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower.
The earth is rocky and full of roots; it's clay, and it seems doomed and polluted, but you dig little holes for the ugly shriveled bulbs, throw in a handful of poppy seeds, and cover it all over, and you know you'll never see it again - it's death and clay and shrivel, and your hands are nicked from the rocks, your nails black with soil.
No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.
All gardening is landscape painting.
You have to get up and plant the seed and see if it grows, but you can't just wait around, you have to water it and take care of it.
Well I do find the beauty in animals. I find beauty everywhere. I find beauty in my garden.

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.
I don't like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It's just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess.
Flowers are happy things.
P. G. Wodehouse
Sometimes, as is the case of peach and plum trees, which are often dwarfed, the plants are thrown into a flowering states, and then, as they flower freely year after year, they have little inclination to make vigorous growth.
A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.
The best place to find God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
George Bernard Shaw
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives.
Plant and your spouse plants with you; weed and you weed alone.
Help us to be ever faithful gardeners of the spirit, who know that without darkness nothing comes to birth, and without light nothing flowers.
Gardeners are good at nurturing, and they have a great quality of patience, they're tender. They have to be persistent.
In search of my mother's garden, I found my own.
If your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
