A man's nature runs either to herbs or weeds; therefore let him seasonably water the one, and destroy the other.

All of us harbour in ourselves hidden gardens and plantations;

And how great soever a Man's Talents may be, unless they be cultivated, they are but half-talents.

Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners.

Work saves us from three great evils: boredom, vice and need.

A quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest.

Create all the happiness you are able to create: remove all the misery you are able to remove.
