The sages of the garden are often stereotyped as being old and grey, and while it's true that these pages are covered with wise words from mature gardeners, they're also sprinkled with ridiculous and irreverent musings to make even the youngest Tom blush. "There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling". (Mirabel Osler). "Unemployment is capitalism's way of getting you to plant a garden". (Orson Scott Card). "Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you". (Nathaniel Hawthorne). "I'm not really a career person. I'm a gardener, basically". (George Harrison).
