Garden as though you will live forever.
A person cannot love a plant after he has pruned it, then he has either done a poor job or is devoid of emotion.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.
The secret of improved plant breeding, apart from scientific knowledge, is love.
To dwell is to garden.
Gee, I am a complete Luddite when it comes to computers, I can barely log on!
Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog.
I am not the only person who uses his computer mainly for the purpose of diddling with his computer.
I am regularly asked what the average Internet user can do to ensure his security. My first answer is usually ‘Nothing; you’re screwed’.
I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.
You talk about German technocracy and you get automobiles.
I’ve got two old Volvos, two old Subarus, and an old Ford Ranger. If you’ve got an old car, you’ve gotta have at least several old cars, ’cause one’s always gonna be in the garage.
If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend.
If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 MPG.
Ikea people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels.
After thirty, a body has a mind of its own.
After you’re older, two things are possibly more important than any others: health and money.
Helen Gurley Brown
Preparation for old age should begin not later than one’s teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.
Dwight L. Moody
The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
The answer to old age is to keep one’s mind busy and to go on with one’s life as if it were interminable. I always admired Chekhov for building a new house when he was dying of tuberculosis.
What is man’s ultimate direction in life? It is to look for love, truth, virtue, and beauty.
When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange – my youth.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk.
The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
