    just because he didn't feel there were any redeeming features in "Orthodox" christianity doesn't mean that he didn't feel christianity was good it just means he didn't agree with the leaders of the church.

    “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”

    “Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others for their beliefs.”

    “Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.”

    “The same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state.”

    “War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.”

    John F. Kennedy

    The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.
    ~Hanna Rion

    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

    I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green.
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse

    You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.
    ~Author Unknown

    The best fertilizer is the gardener's shadow.

    Amos Bronson Alcott: Who loves a garden still his Eden keeps,
    Perennial pleasures plants, and wholesome harvest reaps.


    Dave Barry:
    Your first job is to prepare the soil. The best tool for this is your neighbor's garden tiller. If your neighbor does not own a garden tiller, suggest that he buy one.


    Thomas Jefferson:
    Too old to plant trees for my own gratification, I shall do it for my posterity.

    It's not time to choose yet. Two more days still.

    But there are some great ones on here--picking is going to be hard!
