Famous quotes containing the word plants:

    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)

    When the
    Marne flowed by the plants nodded
    And above the glistering Gila
    A sunset as beautiful as the Athabasca
    Stammered. The Zambezi chimed. The Oxus
    Flowed somewhere.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. The one who plants and the one who waters have a common purpose, and each will receive wages according to the labor of each. For we are God’s servants, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 3:7-9.
