Famous quotes containing the word plants:

    He who plants a tree
    Plants a hope.
    Lucy Larcom (1826–1893)

    Brute force crushes many plants. Yet the plants rise again. The Pyramids will not last a moment compared with the daisy. And before Buddha or Jesus spoke the nightingale sang, and long after the words of Jesus and Buddha are gone into oblivion the nightingale still will sing. Because it is neither preaching nor commanding nor urging. It is just singing. And in the beginning was not a Word, but a chirrup.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    And time brings down what is both strong and tall.
    But plants new set to be eradicate,
    And buds new blown, to have so short a date,
    Is by his hand alone that guides nature and fate.
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)
