There was a time when meadow, grove and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore: -
Turn wheresoe'er I may,
By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

The gardener's work is never at at end; it begins with the year, and continues
to the next: he prepares the ground, and then he sows it; after that he plants,
and then he gathers the fruits....

In Anticipation Quotes
In Western languages the names of the four seasons became complete only
a few centuries ago. Words for winter and summer appear quite early but
in English "spring" came to be used as the name of the season as late as the
sixteenth century, and in German 'fruhjahr', "spring" appeared about the same
time. Similarly, in India "hemanta(winter) and vasanta(spring)" appear in
Sanskrit literature very early, while other seasonal terms come much later.

In Anticipation Quotes
It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else,
indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment
passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where
the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on
the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth
of the soul, growth of the mind.

Spring comes with flowers, autumn with the moon,
summer with the breeze, winter with snow.
When idle concerns don't fill your thoughts,
that's your best season.

In Anticipation Quotes
Finally, I realized what makes my garden exciting is me. Living in it every day,
participating minutely in each small event, I see with doubled and redoubled vision.
Where friends notice a solitary hummingbird pricking the salvia flowers, I recall
a season's worth of hummingbird battles.

In Anticipation Quotes
Summer, fall, winter, spring,
The seasons rotate as each brings
its special beauty to this earth of ours.
Winters' snow and Summers' flowers
Frozen rivers will flow come spring,
There is a renewal of everything.

At last they steal us from ourselves away.

In Anticipation Quotes
Time is but the stream I go a-fishin in. I drink at it, but while
I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is.
It's thin current slides away, but eternity remains.

In Anticipation Quotes
What a dead thing is a clock, with its ponderous embowelments of lead and brass,
its pert or solemn dullness of communication, compared with the simple altar-like
structure and silent heart-language of the old sundials! It stood as the garden god
of Christian gardens. Why is it almost everywhere vanished? If its business-use
be superseded by more elaborate inventions, its moral uses, its beauty, might have
pleaded for its continuance. It spoke of moderate labours, of pleasures not
protracted after sunset, of temperance, and good hours. It was the
primitive clock, the horologue of the first world.
Adam could scare have missed it in Paradise.

In Anticipation Quotes
There is no present or future, only the past,
happening over and over again, now.
