Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
—Richard Brinsley Sheridan
A good garden may have some weeds.
I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs.
If we should be so lucky as to touch the lives of many, so be it. But if our lot is no more than the setting of a table, or the tending of a garden, or showing a child a path in a wood, our lives are no less worthy.
