In a traditional Japanese or Chinese garden, it's not only about the building or temple but about the whole setup — the structure, the landscape, the light, the plants, the water. The whole experience that makes your life there so beautiful.

Ma Yansong


The undisturbed coastal plain is home to a wide variety of plants and animals and is the only wilderness sanctuary in North America that protects a complete range of the arctic ecosystem.

Dan Lipinski


A man doesn't plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.

Alexander Smith


Folks are like plants; we all lean toward the light.

Kris Carr


Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.

John W. Gardner


Plant and your spouse plants with you; weed and you weed alone.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau


Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything — even mountains, rivers, plants and trees — should be your teacher.

Morihei Ueshiba


Use plants to bring life.

Douglas Wilson


If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.

Luther Burbank


Trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.

Plants — quotes and aphorisms

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.

Liberty Hyde Bailey


It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.

B. C. Forbes


Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.

Erma Bombeck


A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Saint Basil


My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
