Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Robert Duncan
#1. The devout have laid out gardens in the desert. #Quote by Robert Duncan
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Eric Klinenberg
#2. What counts as social infrastructure? I define it capaciously. Public institutions such as libraries, schools, playgrounds, parks, athletic fields, and swimming pools are vital parts of the social infrastructure. So too are sidewalks, courtyards, community gardens, and other green spaces that invite people into the public realm. Community organizations, including churches and civic associations, act as social infrastructures when they have an established physical space where people can assemble, as do regularly scheduled markets for food, furniture, clothing, art, and other consumer goods. Commercial establishments can also be important parts of the social infrastructure, particularly when they operate as what the sociologist Ray Oldenburg called "third spaces," places (like cafes, diners, barbershops, and bookstores) where people are welcome to congregate and linger regardless of what they've purchased. #Quote by Eric Klinenberg
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Kelly Gardiner
#3. For years I believed they loved me for my voice, my stage presence, my courageous life. 'Incomparable,' they said. 'Divine.' I am the goddesses on the ceilings of the antechambers at Versailles, the statues in the gardens. That's what they see in me. The huntress. The peacemaker. The Amazon. The Muse. Victory. Glory. War. I am divine. But now I wonder if I was anything more than some exotic creature in the King's pleasure gardens - not a lion, and surely not a baboon, but perhaps - yes - a giraffe. Unlikely. Ungainly. Unique. Beautiful in parts but not particularly attractive as a concept. Alien. But compelling, nevertheless. #Quote by Kelly Gardiner
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Randy Alcorn
#4. If Miss Watson had told Huck what the Bible says about living in a resurrected body and being with people we love on a resurrected Earth with gardens and rivers and mountains and untold adventures
now that would have gotten his attention. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Cheri Bauer
#5. To express my sincere ardor
for the beauty of nature,
I was so colloquial
in saying that "I am batshit passionate
for enchanting gardens #Quote by Cheri Bauer
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Gilbert White
#6. Hedge-hogs abound in my gardens and fields. #Quote by Gilbert White
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Karen R. Jones & John Wills
#7. The construction of castle arbours, monastic cloister gardens and Byzantine courtyards with trees and flowers attested to Western interest in the natural world. Paradise remained synonymous with perfect environments. In Anglo-Saxon, 'paradise' translated as 'meadow' or 'pasture'. Notions of a classical Golden Age, local legends, religion and romantic poetry all perpetuated the concept of nature as a refuge from society. For the nobility, nature signified a retreat for aesthetic pleasure and a venue for spiritual uplift. However, for the average medieval peasant, the organic world meant livestock rearing and crop production. #Quote by Karen R. Jones & John Wills
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Mircea Eliade
#8. Yet it is worth noting that in this example we never witness a complete desacralization of the world, for in the Far East what is called the "esthetic emotion" still retains a religious dimension, even among intellectuals. But the example of the miniature gardens shows us in what direction and by what means the desacralization of the world is accomplished. We need only imagine what an esthetic emotion of this sort could become in a modern society, and we shall understand how the experience of cosmic sanctity can be rarefied and transformed until it becomes a purely human emotion - that, for example, of art for art's sake. #Quote by Mircea Eliade
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Willa Cather
#9. After that hard winter, one could not get enough of the nimble air. Every morning I wakened with a fresh consciousness that winter was over. There were none of the signs of spring for which I used to watch in Virginia, no budding woods or blooming gardens. There was only - spring itself; the throb of it, the light restlessness, the vital essence of it everywhere: in the sky, in the swift clouds, in the pale sunshine, and in the warm, high wind - rising suddenly, sinking suddenly, impulsive and playful like a big puppy that pawed you and then lay down to be petted. If I had been tossed down blindfold on that red prairie, I should have known that it was spring. #Quote by Willa Cather
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by George R R Martin
#10. It's just a stupid sword, she said, aloud this time ...
... but it wasn't.
Needle was Robb and Bran and Rickon, her mother and her father, even Sansa. Needle was Winterfell's grey walls, and the laughter of its people. Needle was the summer snows, Old Nan's stories, the heart tree with its red leaves and scary face, the warm earthy smell of the glass gardens, the sound of the north wind rattling the shutters of her room. Needle was Jon Snow's smile. #Quote by George R R Martin
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Alfonso Maria De Liguori
#11. Then will the poor worldling exclaim: "Alas! my house, my gardens, that elegant furniture, those garments, will soon be no longer mine: the grave alone remaineth for me. #Quote by Alfonso Maria De Liguori
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Delia Smith
#12. I sometimes think the chef end of cooking is not the real end of cooking. Cooking is all about homes and gardens, it doesn't happen in restaurants. #Quote by Delia Smith
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by George Mikes
#13. Rich people (in Australia) have swimming pools in their gardens but, at least, they do swim in them. #Quote by George Mikes
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by John Milton
#14. And add to these retired Leisure, That in trim gardens take his pleasure. #Quote by John Milton
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Tom Turner
#15. The arts which we now call garden design and landscape design have three separate origins: sacred space, horticultural space and domestic space. Like Homo sapiens, the arts of garden and landscape design probably spread to Europe from West Asia. #Quote by Tom Turner
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Ovid
#16. Saepe creat molles aspera spina rosas" - "Often the prickly thorn produces tender roses #Quote by Ovid
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Kendra Kopelke
Kendra Kopelke

It takes five seconds

to cut across

someone's property.

I did it a lot. I led my dog

onto the grass

between two houses,

checked first to see if anyone

appeared to be home.

We wanted to catch

a break

from monotony.

Like thieves

we wanted what we wanted.

We wanted to thread through

the dull canvas

that was our neighborhood,

to make up for the people

who let us down.

We loved

empty backyards,

dead, twisted gardens,

the rush and fear of being

exposed and unseen

in broad daylight.

We were foxes, deer.

We were out there,

where nowhere is.

Maybe the neighbors

would look out their windows

and see us

for what we were.

We walked quickly

heads down,

imagined rifles

pointed at our backs,

fists shaking

behind glass,

voices putting us

in our place.

We told ourselves

each time

this is the last time. #Quote by Kendra Kopelke
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Beverley Nichols
#18. If these are the achievements of man, give me the achievements of geraniums. #Quote by Beverley Nichols
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by R.L. Stine
#19. The five of us were squeezed into Dad's little Toyota, on our way to spend the day at Zoo Gardens Theme Park. Dad had messed up and left the map at home. But Mom said the park would be real easy to find. #Quote by R.L. Stine
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Tom Robbins
#20. I travel in gardens and bedrooms, basements and attics, around corners, through doorways and windows, along sidewalks, over carpets, down drainpipes, in the sky, with friends, lovers, children and heros; perceived, remembered, imagined, distorted and clarified. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
#21. The most she knew about gardens was the Bakers' own backyard, which contained one large mulberry tree and a rosebush, plus the window boxes where her mother grew runner beans. She knew there was earth under the plants and that the earth contained worms. She shuddered. #Quote by Diana Wynne Jones
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Cyril Connolly
#22. It is closing time in the gardens of the West. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#23. In this way I have sat in many rooms and walked in many gardens, and it has been as though I were a stick of furniture or a branch of a tree. I seem to have caused no sense of restraint or embarrassment. People have been able to talk freely in front of me, almost as freely as though I weren't there. I suppose some might think this a great compliment; it has given me a curious feeling of nonexistence. Now #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Steven Erikson
#24. Ben Adaephon Delat," Pearl said plaintively, "see the last who comes. You send me to my death."
"I know," Quick Ben whispered.
"Flee, then. I will hold them enough to ensure your escape no more."
Quick Ben sank down past the roof.
Before he passed from sight Pearl spoke again. "Ben Adaephon Delat, do you pity me?"
"Yes" he replied softly, then pivoted and dropped down into darkness. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by J. Patrick Lewis
#25. Libraries
Excitement #Quote by J. Patrick Lewis
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by John Ruskin
#26. Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. #Quote by John Ruskin
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Mehmet Kececi
#27. Safety Zone = Children of their own homes, gardens, streets, city, country, and all over the world. #Quote by Mehmet Kececi
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Benjamin Vogt
#28. Gardens have deep meaning when they are created and managed to benefit other species, even other humans….Gardening from a larger-than-human perspective can also be empowering. In this time of climate disruption and mass extinction, gardens are becoming places of activism… #Quote by Benjamin Vogt
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Jacquie McNish
#29. Smartphone makers sought deeper ties with retail buyers by adding ring tones, games, Web browsers, and other applications to their phones. Carriers, however, wanted this business to themselves. If they couldn't sell applications within their "walled gardens," carriers worried they would be reduced to mere utilities or "dumb pipes" carrying data and voice traffic. Nokia learned the hard way just how ferociously carriers could defend their turf. In the late 1990s the Finnish phone maker launched Club Nokia, a Web-based portal that allowed customers to buy and download #Quote by Jacquie McNish
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#30. Anne had no sooner uttered the phrase, "home o'dreams," than it captivated her fancy and she immediately began the erection of one of her own. It was, of course, tenanted by an ideal master, dark, proud, and melancholy; but oddly enough, Gilbert Blythe persisted in hanging about too, helping her arrange pictures, lay out gardens, and accomplish sundry other tasks which a proud and melancholy hero evidently considered beneath his dignity. Anne tried to banish Gilbert's image from her castle in Spain but, somehow, he went on being there, so Anne, being in a hurry, gave up the attempt and pursued her aerial architecture with such success that her "home o'dreams" was built and furnished before Diana spoke again. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#31. Out in Saxe-Coburg Street she stood still for a moment and looked at the gardens. He kissed me, she thought. He made the move; I didn't. The thought was an overwhelming one and invested the everyday world about her, the world of the square, of trees, of people walking by, with a curious glow, a chiaroscuro which made everything precious. It was the feeling, she imagined, that one had when one vouchsafed a vision. Everything is changed, becomes more blessed, making the humblest of surroundings a holy place. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by John Galsworthy
#32. Love is not a hot-house flower, but a wild plant, born of a wet night, born of an hour of sunshine; sprung from wild seed, blown along the road by a wild wind. A wild plant that, when it blooms by chance within the hedge of our gardens, we call a flower; and when it blooms outside we call a weed; but, flower or weed, whose scent and colour are always, wild! #Quote by John Galsworthy
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#33. CHILDHOOD I That idol, black eyes and yellow mop, without parents or court, nobler than Mexican and Flemish fables; his domain, insolent azure and verdure, runs over beaches called by the shipless waves, names ferociously Greek, Slav, Celt. At the border of the forest - dream flowers tinkle, flash, and flare, - the girl with orange lips, knees crossed in the clear flood that gushes from the fields, nakedness shaded, traversed, dressed by rainbow, flora, sea. Ladies who stroll on terraces adjacent to the sea; baby girls and giantesses, superb blacks in the verdigris moss, jewels upright on the rich ground of groves and little thawed gardens, - young mothers and big sisters with eyes full of pilgrimages, sultanas, princesses tyrannical of costume and carriage, little foreign misses and young ladies gently unhappy. What boredom, the hour of the "dear body" and "dear heart." II #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Judith McNaught
#34. Feeling a little foolish over her confidences, Elizabeth glanced up at him with an embarrassed smile. "What is the most beautiful place you've ever seen?"
Dragging his gaze from the beauty of the gardens, Ian looked down at the beauty beside him. "Any place," he said huskily, "where you are. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Justina Chen
#35. That's exactly why nature always trumps gardens. Gardens are just reality pruned of chaos. What doesn't work you rip out. #Quote by Justina Chen
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#36. He said that death marks places like a dog marking its territory. Some people can sense it right away, while others simply start to feel uncomfortable after a time. Every stay in any place betrays the quiet ubiquitousness of the dead. As he said:
'At first you always see what's alive and vibrant. You're delighted by nature, by the local church painted in different colours, by the smells and all that. But the longer you're in a place, the more the charm of those things fades. You wonder who lived here before you came to this home and this room, whose things these are, who scratched the wall above the bed and what tree the sills were cut from. Whose hands built the elaborately decorated fireplace, paved the courtyard? And where are they now? In what form? Whose idea led to these paths around the pond and who had the idea of planting a willow out the window? All the houses, avenues, parks, gardens and streets are permeated with the deaths of others. Once you start feeling this, something starts to pull you elsewhere, you start to think it's time to move on.'
He added that when we are in motion, there's no time for such idle meditations. Which is why to people on trips everything seems new and clean, virginal, and, in some sense, immortal. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Scarlett Alice Johnson
#37. I think London is made up of tiny little pockets and villages, and lots of little sub-cultures. So, especially for an actor, it's a brilliant place to live because you've got inspiration all the time, wherever you are. You can turn a corner and you'll be in mansion houses with beautiful gardens and Ferraris, and you'll turn back on yourself and it'll be ghetto land. But I think that's brilliant. #Quote by Scarlett Alice Johnson
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#38. If I walked down by different streets to the Jardin du Luxembourg in the afternoon I could walk through the gardens and then go to the Musée du Luxembourg where the great paintings were that have now mostly been transferred to the Louvre and the Jeu de Paume. I went there nearly every day for the Cézannes and to see the Manets and the Monets and the other Impressionists that I had first come to know about in the Art Institute at Chicago. I was learning something from the painting of Cézanne that made writing simple true sentences far from enough to make the stories have the dimensions that I was trying to put in them. I was learning very much from him but I was not articulate enough to explain it to anyone. Besides it was a secret. But if the light was gone in the Luxembourg I would walk up through the gardens and stop in at the studio apartment where Gertrude Stein lived at 27 rue de Fleurus. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Hannah Tunnicliffe
#39. Ahead, a house sits close to the road: a small, single-story place painted mint green. Ivy grows up one corner and onto the roof, the green tendrils swaying like a girl's hair let loose from a braid. In front there's a full and busy vegetable garden, with plants jostling for real estate and bees making a steady, low, collective hum. It reminds me of the aunties' gardens, and my nonna's when I was a kid. Tomato plants twist gently skywards, their lazy stems tied to stakes. Leafy heads of herbs- dark parsley, fine-fuzzed purple sage, bright basil that the caterpillars love to punch holes in. Rows and rows of asparagus. Whoever lives here must work in the garden a lot. It's wild but abundant, and I know it takes a special vigilance to maintain a garden of this size.
The light wind lifts the hair from my neck and brings the smell of tomato stalks. The scent, green and full of promise, brings to mind a childhood memory- playing in Aunty Rosa's yard as Papa speaks with a cousin, someone from Italy. I am imagining families of fairies living in the berry bushes: making their clothes from spiderweb silk, flitting with wings that glimmer pink and green like dragonflies'. #Quote by Hannah Tunnicliffe
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Sanober Khan
#40. i can't always tell
what's better

long drives
in the star-spangled deserts

or long walks
along winding tea gardens. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Anthony Doerr
#41. The faint metallic smell of the falling snow surrounds her. calm yourself. Listen. Cars splash along streets, and snowmelt drums through runnels; she can hear snowflakes tick and patter through the trees. She can smell the cedars in the Jarin des Plantes a quarter mile away. Here the Metro hurdles beneath the sidewalk; that's the Quai Saint-Bernard. Here the sky opens up, and she hears the clacking of branches: that's the narrow stripe of gardens behind the Gallery of Paleontology. This, she realizes, must be the corner of the quay and rue Cuvier. '
Six blocks, forty buildings, ten tiny trees in a square. This street intersects this street intersects this street. One centimeter at a time.
Her father stirs the keys in his packets. Ahead loom the tall, grand houses that flanked the gardens, reflecting sound.
She says, we go left #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Tom Robbins
#42. Are You Ready for New Urban Fragrances?

Yeah, I guess I'm ready, but listen:

Perfume is a disguise. Since the middle ages, we have worn masks of fruit and flowers in order to conceal from ourselves the meaty essence of our humanity. We appreciate the sexual attractant of the rose, the ripeness of the orange, more than we honor our own ripe carnality.

Now today we want to perfume our cities, as well; to replace their stinging fumes of disturbed fossils' sleep with the scent of gardens and orchards. Yet, humans are not bees any more than they are blossoms. If we must pull an olfactory hood over our urban environment, let it be of a different nature.

I want to travel on a train that smells like snowflakes.

I want to sip in cafes that smell like comets.

Under the pressure of my step, I want the streets to emit the precise odor of a diamond necklace.

I want the newspapers I read to smell like the violins left in pawnshops by weeping hobos on Christmas Eve.

I want to carry luggage that reeks of the neurons in Einstein's brain.

I want a city's gases to smell like the golden belly hairs of the gods.

And when I gaze at a televised picture of the moon, I want to detect, from a distance of 239,000 miles, the aroma of fresh mozzarella. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by D.E. Stevenson
#43. There are adventures of the spirit and one can travel in books and interest oneself in people and affairs. One need never be dull as long as one has friends to help, gardens to enjoy and books in the long winter evenings. #Quote by D.E. Stevenson
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Ellen G. White
#44. In the green fields and under the shadow of the goodly trees they set up the altars of their idols. Extensive groves, that retained their foliage throughout the year, were dedicated to the worship of false gods. With these groves were connected beautiful gardens, their long, winding avenues overhung with fruit-bearing trees of all descriptions, adorned with statuary, and furnished with all that could delight the senses or minister to the voluptuous desires of the people, and thus allure them to participate in the idolatrous worship. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Salvaterra Gardens quotes by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
#45. Families could often trace their lineage back several centuries. Their livelihood was earned from drum playing, a service considered to be dis-respectable. As members of a low caste, the drummers were forbidden to build decent houses. There were allowed to build wattle and daub huts, and to live rent-free on their patrons' properties. The right to own the country's land was restricted in this manner, a vicious condition that arose through tradition and was reinforced by law. Patterns of financial power and political hierarchy existed hand in hand. #Quote by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
