- The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for Him there. - George Bernard Shaw
- In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous. - Aristotle
- I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day. - F. Frankfort Moore
- I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green. - Nathaniel Hawthorne
- Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders. - Henry David Thoreau
I decided this year that I would become a vegetable gardener. It's very rewarding and also a little mystifying to realize what an accomplishment it can be to actually grow your own food.
