    Was born and rais’d in Ocean’s pearly caves
    First forms minute, unseen by spheric glass,
    Move on the mud, or pierce the watery mass;

    New powers acquire, and larger limbs assume;
    Whence countless groups of vegetation spring,
    And breathing realms of fin, and feet and wing.” ~ Erasmus Darwin

  13. “All human affairs follow nature’s great analogue, the growth of vegetation. There are three periods of growth in every plant. The first, and slowest, is the invisible growth by the root; the second and much accelerated is the visible growth by the stem; but when root and stem have gathered their forces, there comes the third period, in which the plant quickly flashes into blossom and rushes into fruit.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher

  17. “The poet alone knows astronomy, chemistry, vegetation, and animation, for he does not stop at these facts, but employs them as signs.

One gets tired of the word beautiful.” ~ M. E. W. Sherwood
  19. “You must talk to me, Caravaggio. Or am I just a book? Something to be read, some creature to be tempted out of a loch and shot full of morphine, full of corridors, lies, loose vegetation, pockets of stones.” ~ Michael Ondaatje

  23. “The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man’s thoughts.” ~ Louis Aragon

  26. “The chaste severity of the fathers in whatever related to the commerce of the two sexes flowed from the same principle — their abhorrence of every enjoyment which might gratify the sensual and degrade the spiritual nature of man. It was their favourite opinion, that if Adam had preserved his obedience to the Creator, he would have lived for ever in a state of virgin purity, and that some harmless mode of vegetation might have peopled paradise with a race of innocent and immortal beings.” ~ Edward Gibbon
  27. “It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries. I think that they possibly have been sent out to conduct systematic, long-range investigations, first of men, animals, vegetation, and more recently of atomic centers, armaments an centers of armament production.” ~ Hermann Oberth'”Alexia had spent long hours wondering over that mustache. Werewolves did not grow hair, as they did not age. Where had it come from? Had he always had it? For how many centuries had his poor abused upper lip labored under the burden of such vegetation?” ~ Gail Carriger

All this was great, expectant, mute, while the man jabbered about himself.” ~ Joseph Conrad
  31. “Woman is God’s supreme creation. Only after the earth had been formed, after the day had been separated from the night, after the waters had been divided from the land, after vegetation and animal life had been created, and after man had been placed on the earth, was woman created; and only then was the work pronounced complete and good.” ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

  33. “To his eyes all seemed beautiful, but to me a tinge of melancholy lay upon the countryside, which bore so clearly the mark of the waning year, Yellow leaves carpeted the lanes and fluttered down upon us as we passed, The rattle of our wheels died away as we drove through drifts of rotting vegetation–sad gifts, as it seemed to me, for Nature to throw before the carriage of the returning heir of the Baskervilles.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
  34. “(Baudelaire) had descended to the bottom of the inexhaustible mine, had picked his way along abandoned or unexplored galleries, and had finally reached those districts of the soul where the monstrous vegetations of the sick mind flourish. There, near the breeding ground of intellectuals aberrations and disease of the mind – the mysterious tetanus, the burning fever of lust, the thyphoids and yellow fevers of crime – he had found, hatching in the dismal forcing-house of ennui, the frightening climacteric of thoughts and emotions.” ~ Joris-Karl Huysmans
  35. “She loved the sea for its storms alone, cared for vegetation only when it grew here and there among ruins. She had to extract a kind of personal advantage from things and she rejected as useless everything that promised no immediate gratification — for her temperament was more sentimental than artistic, and what she was looking for was emotions, not scenery.” ~ Gustave Flaubert
  36. “Rely on renewable energy flows that are always there whether we use them or not, such as, sun, wind and vegetation: on energy income, not depletable energy capital.” ~ Amory Lovins

  37. “If a solution fails to appear … and yet we feel success is just around the corner, try resting for a while. … Like the early morning frost, this intellectual refreshment withers the parasitic and nasty vegetation that smothers the good seed.

  38. “Saturday morning was come, and all the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life. There was a song in every heart; and if the heart was young, the music issued at the lips.

Cardiff Hill, beyond the village and above, it was green with vegetation, and it lay just far enough away to seem a Delectable Land, dreamy, reposeful, and inviting.” ~ Mark Twain , Green vegetation quotes
  39. “”Have you done your homework?” my mother would ask. “I’ll do it later.” “You will do it now, young man. I don’t want you winding up on the third shift at Flagg-Utica.” Flagg-Utica was a local textile plant. Somehow, I never could figure how failing to read three chapters in my geography book about the various sorts of vegetation to be found in a tropical rain forest had anything to do with facing a life as a mill hand. But with enough guilt and fear as catalysts, you can read anything, even geography books and Deuteronomy.” ~ Lewis Grizzard

Any other climb there’s vegetation, grass and trees. Not there on the Ventoux. It’s more like the moon than a mountain.” ~ Lance Armstrong
  43. “I am above the forest region, amongst grand rocks & such a torrent as you see in Salvator Rosa’s paintings vegetation all a scrub of rhodods. with Pines below me as thick & bad to get through as our Fuegian Fagi on the hill tops, & except the towering peaks of P. S. that, here shoot up on all hands there is little difference in the mt scenery—here however the blaze of Rhod. flowers and various colored jungle proclaims a differently constituted region in a naturalists eye & twenty species here, to one there, always are asking me the vexed question, where do we come from?” ~ Joseph Dalton Hooker
  44. “College is a secluded life of scholastic vegetation” ~ Vera Brittain

  45. “The Revelations is an amazing, rich material that is full of stories about angels and angels being sent down to Earth to wipe out a third of the population. There are angels that come down and wipe out a third of the population and then another angel will come down and wipe out a third of all the animals living in the sea and another angel will come down and wipe out all the vegetation on the land. They are some vengeful individules, in Revelations, the angels. There is a lot of destructive capacity in an angel’s being.” ~ Misha Collins
  46. “After Hurricane Katrina, many people said that the levees were not as effective as the natural vegetation that had been removed at the coast.

  51. “There is a growing threat to the environment, to the vegetation, animals, water and air.

  52. “The American government has spent a lot of money trying to reclaim, for example, the Everglades, and to allow the natural vegetation at the coastal areas to be restored because that was part of the vegetation that actually protected the hinterlands.” ~ Wangari Maathai

  53. “I think rain is as necessary to the mind as to vegetation. My very thoughts become thirsty, and crave the moisture.” ~ John Burroughs
  54. “By helping to raise man above the level of bestial vegetation, faith contributes in reality to the securing and safeguarding of his existence.

  55. “Her mighty lakes, like oceans of liquid silver; her mountains with their right aerial tints; her valleys, teeming with wild fertility; her tremendous cataracts, thundering in their solitudes; her boundless plains, waving with spontaneous verdure; her brought deep rivers, rolling in solemn silence to the ocean; her trackless forests, where vegetation puts forth all its magnificence; her skies, kindling waves in the magic of the summer clouds and glorious sunshine;-no, never need an American look beyond his own country for the sublime and beautiful of natural scenery.” ~ Washington Irving

  57. “I would not have every man nor every part of a man cultivated, any more than I would have every acre of earth cultivated: part will be tillage, but the greater part will be meadow and forest, not only serving an immediate use, but preparing a mould against a distant future, by the annual decay of the vegetation which it supports.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
  58. “We love to see any redness in the vegetation of the temperate zone. It is the color of colors. This plant speaks to our blood….What a perfect maturity it arrives at! It is the emblem of a successful life concluded by a death not premature, which is an ornament to Nature. What if we were to mature as perfectly, root and branch, glowing in the midst of our decay, like the poke!” ~ Henry David Thoreau
  59. “Thanh Hoa itself is a rich agricultural province.

The vegetation, wild or cultivated, is lush.” ~ Noam Chomsky

  61. “Whatever I decide will not work.  It’s what people want that will work.  So no one decided whether you become a vegetarian or anything else.  What determines that is the availability of food.  If we run out of vegetation due to floods or natural disasters, people will consume meat and if we run out of meat they will consume vegetables.  I have no control over that.  That would be up to people.” ~ Jacque Fresco
  62. “You do not have to force yourself to do anything at all. There is a continual exchange, a continual dance. It is similar to the sun shining and plants growing. The sun has no desire to create the vegetation; plants simply react to sunlight and the situation develops naturally.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa

  65. “I shall never forget my first encounter with gorillas. Sound preceded sight. Odor preceded sound in the form of an overwhelming, musky-barnyard, humanlike scent. The air was suddenly rent by a high-pitched series of screams followed by the rhythmic rondo of sharp pok-pok chestbeats from a great silverbacked male obscured behind what seemed an impenetrable wall of vegetation.” ~ Dian Fossey
