The Wit & Wisdom of Gardening by Nick Holt

Nearly a thousand quotes from gardeners, from the pros to the procrastinators

Unemployment is capitalism's way of getting you to plant a garden.  —Orson Scott Card

Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  —Nathaniel Hawthorne

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.  —Mirabel Osler

I'm not really a career person. I'm a gardener, basically. George Harrison

The sages of the garden are often stereotyped as being old and grey, and while it's true that these pages are covered with wise words from mature gardeners, they're also sprinkled with ridiculous and irreverent musings. All manners of gardening subjects are touched upon, from the obvious, such as manure and roses, to the more obscure musings born from spending too much time among the weeds.
