The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.
Sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
G. K. Chesterton
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
To me every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive…
In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?
J. B. Priestley
If you wait until the wind and weather are just right, you will never plant anything and never harvest anything.
We live for the bounties of fall but the harvest of friendship is blessed above all.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Robert Louis Stephenson
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
Mitchell Burgess, Northern Exposure
The more one sows, the greater the harvest.
Orison Swett Marden
Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a hoe and she laughs with a harvest.
