For this week's Quotables segment, the quotes are about the glory of gardening and I was inspired to focus on this by listener Philip Buccilli who shared some gorgeous pictures of his garden and accompanied them with this first quotable by Alfred Austin...

Alfred Austin

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.

Thomas Jefferson

No occupation is so delightful to me

as the culture of the earth,

and no culture comparable

to that of the garden.

George Bernard Shaw

The best place to find God is in a garden.

You can dig for him there.

William Wordsworth

Your mind is the garden.

Your thoughts are the seeds

The harvest can either be flowers or weeds.

Albert Einstein

Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

If you have a garden and a library,

you have everything you need.

Oscar de la Renta

Gardening is the work of a lifetime.

You never finish.
