Quotes about weeds

“A good garden may have some weeds.”
~ Proverb

“A beginner must look on himself as one setting out to make a garden for his Lord’s pleasure, on most unfruitful soil which abounds in weeds. His Majesty roots up the weeds and will put in good plants instead. Let us reckon that this is already done when the soul decides to practice prayer and has begun to do so.”

~ Saint Theresa of Avila

“Weeds Never Die.”
~ Danish Proverb

“Weeds are Like People: We may be different but you gotta dig us.”
–  Lyndsay

“A flowering weed;
Hearing its name,
I looked anew at it.”
~ Teiji

“Your minds may now be likened to a garden, which will, if neglected, yield only weeds and thistles; but, if cultivated, will produce the most beautiful flowers, and the most delicious fruits.”

~ Dorothea Dix

“Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste.”
~ William Shakespeare

“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow firm there, firm as weeds among stones.”

~ Charlotte Bronte

“People who spend a great deal of time in their gardens attest to the natural mindfulness that gardening requires.  What could be more naturally mindful than weeding?  It requires a great deal of sustained attention.  Weeds need to be taken up with care: Pull too hard, and the weed breaks in your fingers, leaving the root to grow and spread.  Different weeds need different techniques and, sometimes, tools.  When we weed our gardens, we have to pay attention to where and how we walk and bend.  Move too far in one direction or another, and we’ll squash growing things.”
~ Sura Lama Das, Awakening to the Sacred

“The weeds keep multiplying in our garden, which is our mind ruled by fear. Rip them out and call them by name.”

~ Sylvia Browne
