Returning to the soil

"One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener's own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race." - Wendell Berry
"To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves." - Mohandas Gandhi
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature ‑ the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter." - Rachel Carson
"Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
