The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
Alfred Austin


The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.

Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun


Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
May Sarton


Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. 
Luther Burbank


Life is the flower for which love is the honey. 
Victor Hugo


Dirt under the fingernails is a sign of a day well lived.
