Famous quotes containing the word plants:

    The holly and the ivy
    Are plants that are well known
    Of all the trees that grow in the woods
    The holly bears the crown.
    —Unknown. The Holly and the Ivy (l. 1–4)

    Probably if our lives were more conformed to nature, we should not need to defend ourselves against her heats and colds, but find her our constant nurse and friend, as do plants and quadrupeds.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    From the time the Englishman’s bones harden into bones at all, he makes his skeleton a flagstaff, and he early plants his feet like one who is to walk the world and the decks of all the seas.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)
