A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.
D. Elton Trueblood
Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.
God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.
He plants trees to benefit another generation.
Help us to be ever faithful gardeners of the spirit, who know that without darkness nothing comes to birth, and without light nothing flowers.
