In gardens, beauty is a by-product. The main business is sex and death. ~Sam Llewelyn

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gardening is civil and social, but it wants the vigor and freedom of the forest and the outlaw. - Henry David Thoreau

Tomatoes and squash never fail to reach maturity. You can spray them with acid, beat them with sticks and burn them; they love it. - S.J. Perelman, Acres and Pains, 1951

A garden was the primitive prison, till man with Promethean felicity and boldness, luckily sinned himself out of it. - Charles Lamb, 1830

Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~Walt Whitman

Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there. ~Thomas Fuller, Gnomologia, 1732

We have descended into the garden and caught three hundred slugs. How I love the mixture of the beautiful and the squalid in gardening. It makes it so lifelike. ~Evelyn Underhill, Letters

Garden writing is often very tame, a real waste when you think how opinionated, inquisitive, irreverent and lascivious gardeners themselves tend to be. Nobody talks much about the muscular limbs, dark, swollen buds, strip-tease trees and unholy beauty that have made us all slaves of the Goddess Flora. ~Ketzel Levine's

You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt. ~Author Unknown
