Look fear in the face...

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

That is why I dance."

This planet is an exquisitely arranged and interconnected system.
What's controlled in one place is going to have consequences in another place.

Our job as gardeners is to try and figure this out no matter how small our allotted space might be.
Discipline has to be the watchword for our controlling hands.

It means not gardening without thinking of the garden as a habitat: for mice, for squirrels, for bees and wasps.

For other living creatures beyond ourselves.

Marjorie Harris, In the Garden, 1995
