The Secret Garden quotes by Darren Shan
#1. I always loved horror, but I read all sorts of books. My favourite as a child was 'The Secret Garden' which has a big influence on Lord Loss, believe it or not! #Quote by Darren Shan
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#2. She wished she could talk as he did. His speech was so quick and easy. It sounded as if he liked her and was not the least afraid she would not like him, though he was only a common moor boy, in patched clothes and with a funny face and a rough, rusty-red head. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#3. The Secret Garden was what Mary called it when she was thinking of it. She liked the name, and she liked still more the feeling that when its beautiful old walls shut her in no one knew where she was. It seemed almost like being shut out of the world in some fairy place. The few books she had read and liked had been fairy-story books, and she had read of secret gardens in some of the stories. Sometimes people went to sleep in them for a hundred years, which she had thought must be rather stupid. She had no intention of going to sleep, and, in fact, she was becoming wider awake every day which passed at Misselthwaite. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden quotes by Lois Lowry
#4. Many of the books I loved as a kid, that even my mother read as a child, are very slow going. Today's children are not as patient. The best example of this is 'The Secret Garden,' which I adored as a child. #Quote by Lois Lowry
The Secret Garden quotes by Chelsea Fine
#5. It was like the Secret Garden.
Of dead people. #Quote by Chelsea Fine
The Secret Garden quotes by Ellen Potter
#6. A lot of times, when I go back to books I loved when I was young, I don't quite understand what it was that I loved about them. Rereading 'The Secret Garden,' I felt a lot like Mary feels when she visits her garden. #Quote by Ellen Potter
The Secret Garden quotes by Ellen Potter
#7. I've reread 'The Secret Garden' every year as an adult. I have a battered copy on my bookshelf - it's really quite a mess! The experience of reading the novel keeps deepening for me. #Quote by Ellen Potter
The Secret Garden quotes by Cynthia Voigt
#8. One day at my grandmother's house, I discovered 'The Secret Garden' and read it. This was the first book I found entirely for myself, and I cherished it. #Quote by Cynthia Voigt
The Secret Garden quotes by Carolyn Custis James
#9. Now, instead of asking if God is good for women, I'm asking a new question. I stole it from Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel, "The Secret Garden." When the orphaned heroine, Mary Lennox, stumbled over a piece of untended, overgrown land needing to be ruled and subdued, she asked her uncle, "Might I have a bit of earth?"
[ ... ] May God bless every woman's life with men like Boaz. But even if there is no Boaz, God is a mighty advocate. God is good for women, and women who know this are strong for his kingdom. God wants to hear his daughters ask, "Might I have a bit of earth?" This is the Gospel of Ruth. #Quote by Carolyn Custis James
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#10. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden quotes by Allison Tolman
#11. 'The Secret Garden' was the first musical that I fell in love with when I was a kid. My mom took me to see it, and it was the first one that I owned the soundtrack to and listened to over and over again. #Quote by Allison Tolman
The Secret Garden quotes by Mary Pope Osborne
#12. I loved Frances Hodgson Burnett, who wrote 'The Little Princess' and 'The Secret Garden.' And I loved the 'Little House on the Prairie' books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. #Quote by Mary Pope Osborne
The Secret Garden quotes by Diriye Osman
#13. In those sticky summer nights in South London our windows stay open and our tiny apartment becomes our secret garden. The magic of the secret garden is that it exists in our imagination. There are no limits, no borderlines. The secret garden leads to the marigolds of Mogadishu and the magnolias of Kingston and when the heat turns us sticky and sweet and unwilling to be claimed by defeat we own the night. We own our bodies. We own our lives. #Quote by Diriye Osman
The Secret Garden quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#14. I took my time exploring. I savored the first minutes in a new home. Carlos would always go straight to unpacking boxes, looking for the sheets and coffeepot and swearing that we were going to get better organized, while I stepped stealthily over the bare floors, peeking around corners and into alluring doors, which generally turned out to be the broom closet. But there was that thrilling sense that, like a new lover, the place held attributes I had yet to discover. My favorite book as a child was _The Secret Garden_. It's embarrassing to think I'd merrily relocated again and again, accompanying Carlos to the ends of the earth, because of the lure of a possible garret or secret closet. But it might be true. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#15. In each century since the beginning of the world wonderful things have been discovered. In the last century more amazing things were found out than in any other century before. In this new century hundreds of things still more astounding will be brought to light. At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they see it can be done- then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago. One of these things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts- just mere thoughts- are as powerful as electric batteries- as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live.

The Secret Garden quotes by Carla Laureano
#16. Her Instagram feed filled up with gorgeous photos of her creations displayed alongside books, some of their links tenuous at best. Double chocolate cookies made with huge chunks of Valrhona chocolate found their American-Parisian mash-up reference in Alcott's Little Women. Currant cinnamon rolls as big as a baby's head were paired with The Secret Garden. Her lemon-blueberry muffins posed alongside a favorite childhood picture book, Blueberries For Sal. #Quote by Carla Laureano
The Secret Garden quotes by Jean Fritz
#17. When I lived in China, there were no libraries. My mother bought books for me, and they were mostly the classics. I read 'Peter Pan,' 'The Secret Garden,' the 'Rosemary' books, and Kipling's 'Just So' Stories was one of my favorites. No, I didn't read historical fiction. It didn't exist where I was growing up in China. #Quote by Jean Fritz
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#18. Mountains & low hills would enclose us, & gardens & woods & green spaces would surround us - And each pretty house & its garden would hide itself in its very own corner - And the beloved & understanding people would stroll in & out just when they chose & read to each other under trees on lawns & tell stories on broad porches while the mountains & the clouds & the birds & the flowers would look & listen & delight & always understand what everybody meant because they would all belong.
-from Frances Hodgson Burnett: The unexpected life of the author of the Secret Garden #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#19. As she came closer to him she noticed that there was a clean fresh scent of heather and grass and leaves about him, almost as if he were made of them. She liked it very much and when she looked into his funny face with the red cheeks and round blue eyes she forgot that she had felt shy. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden quotes by James Anthony Froude
#20. The secret of a person's nature lies in their religion and what they really believes about the world and their place in it. #Quote by James Anthony Froude
The Secret Garden quotes by Rumi
#21. Let Go of Your Worries Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like the face of a mirror that contains no images. If you want a clear mirror, behold yourself and see the shameless truth, which the mirror reflects. If metal can be polished to a mirror-like finish, what polishing might the mirror of the heart require? Between the mirror and the heart is this single difference: the heart conceals secrets, while the mirror does not. #Quote by Rumi
The Secret Garden quotes by Nelson Mandela
#22. I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
The Secret Garden quotes by Rumi
#23. And if every way is closed before you. The secret one will show a secret path no other eyes have seen. #Quote by Rumi
The Secret Garden quotes by Alan Paton
#24. - This world is full of trouble, umfundisi.
- Who knows it better?
- Yet you believe?
Kumalo looked at him under the light of the lamp. I believe, he said, but I have learned that it is a secret. Pain and suffering, they are a secret. Kindness and love, they are a secret. But I have learned that kindness and love can pay for pain and suffering. There is my wife, and you, my friend, and these people who welcomed me, and the child who is so eager to be with us here in Ndotsheni – so in my suffering I can believe.
- I have never thought that a Christian would be free of suffering, umfundisi. For our Lord suffered. And I come to believe that he suffered, not to save us from suffering, but to teach us how to bear suffering. For he knew that there is no life without suffering.
Kumalo looked at his friend with joy. You are a preacher, he said. #Quote by Alan Paton
The Secret Garden quotes by A.M. Robinson
#25. Please don't tell your family that I'm here," he says softly. "I want to keep a low profile."
"Done," I say, knowing that the story of how I got caught peeping in his back window like a weirdo will be an easy secret to keep. #Quote by A.M. Robinson
The Secret Garden quotes by Anthony Romero
#26. President Bush broke the law and lied to the American people when he unilaterally authorized secret wiretaps of U.S. citizens. But rather than focus on this constitutional crisis, Attorney General Gonzales is cracking down on critics of his friend and boss. Our nation is strengthened, not weakened, by those whistle-blowers who are courageous enough to speak out on violations of the law. #Quote by Anthony Romero
The Secret Garden quotes by Donna Tartt
#27. ...And besides, is death really so terrible a thing? It seems terrible to you, because you are young, but who is to say he is not better off now than you are? Or - if death is a journey to another place - that you will not see him again? #Quote by Donna Tartt
The Secret Garden quotes by T. Harv Eker
#28. Your programming leads to your thoughts; your thoughts lead to your feelings; your feelings lead to your actions; your actions leads to your results. Therefore, just as is done with a personal computer, by changing your programming, you take the first essential step to changing your results. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
The Secret Garden quotes by Megan McArdle
#29. The secret to catching your mistakes quickly is simple: treat outside information as if it were inside information. When someone tells you you're off track, don't look for reasons why they may be wrong; listen for reasons why they might be right. #Quote by Megan McArdle
The Secret Garden quotes by Pat Conroy
#30. Being a failed teenager is not a crime, but a predicament and a secret crucible. It is a fun-house mirror where distortion and mystification led to the bitter reflection that sometimes ripens into self knowledge. Time is the only ally of the humiliated teenager, who eventually discovers the golden boy of the senior class is a bloated, bald drunk at the twentieth reunion, and that the homecoming queen married a wife-beater and philanderer and died in a drug rehabilitation center before she was thirty. The prince of acne rallied in college and is now head of neurology, and the homeliest girl blossoms in her twenties, marries the chief financial officer of a national bank, and attends her reunion as president of the Junior League. But since a teenager is denied a crystal ball that will predict the future, there is a forced march quality to this unspeakable rite of passage. It is an unforgivable crime for teenagers not to be able to absolve themselves for being ridiculous creatures at the most hazardous time of their lives. #Quote by Pat Conroy
The Secret Garden quotes by Sam Esmail
#31. What I'm about to tell you is top secret. A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There's a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I'm talking about the guys no one knows about, the ones that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission. And now I think they're following me. #Quote by Sam Esmail
The Secret Garden quotes by Lev Grossman
#32. I will take some chances. If you will, for just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there's nothing else. It's here, and you'd better decide to enjoy it or you're going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever." "You can't just decide to be happy." "No, you can't. But you can sure as hell decide to be miserable. Is that what you want? #Quote by Lev Grossman
The Secret Garden quotes by T. Harv Eker
#33. You must acquire the habits and skills of managing a small amount of money before you can have a large amount. Remember, we are creatures of habit and, therefore, the habit of managing your money is more important than the amount. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
The Secret Garden quotes by Umberto Eco
#34. There's the rub. The manifesto doesn't say; it leaves you with your mouth watering. But it was important; so important, it had to remain secret. #Quote by Umberto Eco
The Secret Garden quotes by John Dryden
#35. None, none descends into himself, to find
The secret imperfections of his mind:
But every one is eagle-ey'd to see
Another's faults, and his deformity. #Quote by John Dryden
The Secret Garden quotes by Horace
#36. The secret of all good writing is sound judgment. #Quote by Horace
The Secret Garden quotes by Robert Greene
#37. A lot of the things that involve power on the highest levels sometimes involve the darker side of human psychology. People can be very passive aggressive or they can be aggressive and they can conceal their intentions. There's this world that exists that nobody writes about or describes it's like a dirty little secret or taboo. #Quote by Robert Greene
The Secret Garden quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#38. She said, "Why can't you see that people care for you?"
She said, "I care for you."
"I know that you care. But…" He searched her face. "Anyone would, for a friend."
"You're more than a friend."
"On the battlefield, you stayed--"
"Of course I did."
"You have a strong sense of honor. You always have. I think you think you owe me something."
"I stayed because I love you."
He flinched and looked away. "You don't mean that."
"Yes, I do."
The night outside seemed to swell against the tent. The lamp smelled like a hot stone. His face slowly opened. He touched her hand as it pressed against his heart. His caress was light, secret, almost unsure of her knuckles, the thin tendons as strong as bone. She felt him become sure.
There was no sound when he kissed her. None when she unthreaded the ties of his shirt and found his skin.
He grasped her dagger belt, flexed his fingers once around the leather, then simply held on. He whispered something into her mouth that was almost a word. It lost its shape, became something else.
He let go. She heard the brush of linen as he drew the shirt over his head, his fingertips grazing the tent's sloped ceiling as if for balance. His ribs were bound with gauze, his body marked by scars. Old ones, badly healed and raised. Others, pink and fresh. His shoulders bore pale gouges; they looked like sets of claws, almost deliberate, like tattoos. Curious, she touched them.
He bit his lip.
#Quote by Marie Rutkoski
The Secret Garden quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#39. It was this night that he told me the strange story of his youth with Dan Cody - told it to me because "Jay Gatsby" had broken up like glass against Tom's hard malice, and the long secret extravaganza was played out. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
The Secret Garden quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#40. The great secret of power is never to will to do more than you can accomplish. #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
The Secret Garden quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#41. After their encounter on the approach to Jupiter, there would aways be a secret bond between them
not of love, but of tenderness, which is often more enduring. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
The Secret Garden quotes by Paul Brunton
#42. Whoever wants the "I" to yield up its mysterious and tremendous secret must stop it from looking perpetually in the mirror, must stop the little ego's fascination with its own image. #Quote by Paul Brunton
The Secret Garden quotes by Pamela Druckerman
#43. The French aren't perfect, but they have some parenting secrets that really do work. #Quote by Pamela Druckerman
The Secret Garden quotes by Morrissey
#44. Dismissal can be a secret form of arrogance, and I held this proudly against the Stones until the light shifted and I caught myself being utterly wrong. #Quote by Morrissey
The Secret Garden quotes by Cassandra Clare
#45. Every time they saw him, they recognized him and knew him and expected things of him. And every time he came up blank. It was like watching someone digging where they knew they'd buried something precious, digging and digging and realizing that whatever it was
was gone. But they kept digging just the same, because the idea of losing it was so terrible and because maybe.
He was that lost treasure. He was that maybe. And he hated it. That was the secret he was trying to keep from them, the one he was always fearing he would betray. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
The Secret Garden quotes by J.K. Rowling
#46. Harry took the map and grinned.
"You told me Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs would've wanted to lure me out of school... you said they'd have thought it was funny."
"And so we would have done," said Lupin, now reaching down to close his case. "I have no hesitation in saying that James would have been highly disappointed if his son had never found any of the secret passages out of the castle. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
The Secret Garden quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#47. This is the secret of accompaniment. I will hold a mirror to you and show you your value, bear witness to your suffering, and to your light. And over time, you will do the same for me, for within the relationship lies the promise of our shared dignity and the mutual encouragement needed to do the hard things.
Whatever you aim to do, whatever problem you hope to address, remember to accompany those who are struggling, those who are left out, who lack the capabilities needed to solve their own problems. We are each other's destiny. Beneath the hard skills and firm strategic priorities needed to resolve our greatest challenges lies the soft, fertile ground of our shared humanity. In that place of hard and soft is sustenance enough to nourish the entire human family. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
The Secret Garden quotes by Joe Vitale
#48. The universe will start to rearrange itself to make it happen for you. #Quote by Joe Vitale
The Secret Garden quotes by Thucydides
#49. The secret of freedom, courage ... #Quote by Thucydides
The Secret Garden quotes by Heather Dubrow
#50. I do think the secret to a good marriage is separate bathrooms. #Quote by Heather Dubrow
The Secret Garden quotes by Arnold Palmer
#51. The whole secret to mastering the game of golf - and this applies to the beginner as well as the pro - is to cultivate a mental approach to the game that will enable you to shrug off the bad days, keep patient and know in your heart that sooner or later you will be back on top. #Quote by Arnold Palmer
The Secret Garden quotes by Bert McCoy
#52. Water doesn't know where it's going to flow, it just flows. #Quote by Bert McCoy
The Secret Garden quotes by Phyllis McGinley
#53. The saints differ from us in their exuberance, the excess of our human talents. Moderation is not their secret. It is in the wildness of their dreams, the desperate vitality of their ambitions, that they stand apart from ordinary people of good will. #Quote by Phyllis McGinley
The Secret Garden quotes by Omar Khayyam
#54. Where is an intimate
who'll hear the secret
from me straight out–
of what human beings
have been
from the moment they began?
of toil
and molded
the clay of sorrow.
They wander the world for a time,
off. #Quote by Omar Khayyam
