9780071360616: The Quotable Gardener: Words of Wisdom from Walt Whitman, Alice Walker, Thomas Jefferson, Martha Stewart, The Farmer's Almanac, and more

The love of plants seems ironically to go hand-in-hand with the love of the written word. From such masters of the pen as William Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde; to recorded literature such as the bible. These quotes are organized into thematic chapters such as "seasons", "beauty", and "weather".

From the Back Cover:

Between your seed catalogues and gardening magazines, make room for The Quotable Gardener...

"My garden is an honest place. Every tree and every vine are incapable of concealment, and tell after two or three months exactly what sort of treatment they have had." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Cats and plants look wonderful on postcards. In real life cats pee on plants and kill them... In my experience nothing else will work except a large hungry cat-hating dog, and these dig holes in your garden." - Josephine Saxton

"Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste." - William Shakespeare

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt" - Margaret Atwood
