Garden as though you will live forever.
— William Kent
My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece
— Claude Monet
A garden is a grand teacher
. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.
— Gertrude Jekyll
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
