Famous quotes containing the words amateur and/or fellowship:

    The true gardener then brushes over the ground with slow and gentle hand, to liberate a space for breath round some favourite; but he is not thinking about destruction except incidentally. It is only the amateur like myself who becomes obsessed and rejoices with a sadistic pleasure in weeds that are big and bad enough to pull, and at last, almost forgetting the flowers altogether, turns into a Reformer.
    Freya Stark (1893–1993)

    And sometimes I remember days of old
    When fellowship seemed not so far to seek,
    And all the world and I seemed much less cold,
    And at the rainbow’s foot lay surely gold,
    And hope felt strong, and life itself not weak.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
