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.
The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability
The man who has planted a garden feels that he has done something for the good of the world.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all
Don't tell me about the world. Not today. It's springtime and they're knocking baseball around fields where the grass is damp and green in the morning and the kids are trying to hit the curve ball
I think a baseball field must be the most beautiful thing in the world. It's so honest and precise. And we play on it. Every star gets humbled. Every mediocre player has a great moment
The Bronx is famous for two things. Hip-hop, and 26 world championships.
The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point, however, is to change it

Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those others that have been tried from time to time.
We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.
Hunger is the best sauce in the world
Meditation upon the unknown Thought He thought was real meditation. No, meditation is not and cannot be On any thought. Meditation is a conscious withdrawal From the thought-world. Meditation is the place Where Reality, Divinity and Immortality Can each claim their own Perennial existence-light.
The important work of moving the world forward does not wait to be done by perfect men.
Turn your vision inward and the whole world will be full of supreme spirit
If we know the divine art of concentration, if we know the divine art of meditation, if we know the divine art of contemplation, easily and
consciously we can unite the inner world and the outer world
If you have controlled your mind you are the conqueror of the whole world.
When I'm living in the world of luxury and celebrity, which is where I found myself for a large part of my life, it's a walk-on part. Not a vital necessity, like it is for so many people. I enjoy it but I can see right through it!
Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in the world.

There, in her den, lay pompous luxury,
Stretch'd out at length; no vice could boast such high
And genial victories as she had won;
Of which proud trophies there at large were shown,
Besides small states and kingdoms ruined
Those mighty monarchies that had o'erspread
The spacious earth, and stretch'd their conquering arms
From pole to pole, by her ensnaring charms
Were quite consum'd; there lay imperial Rome,
That vanquish'd all the world, by her o'ercome;
Fetter'd was th' old Assyrian lion there;
The Grecian leopard, and the Persian bear;
With others numberless, lamenting by,
Examples of the power of luxury.
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcasticd festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
It is our illusions that create the world
Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world
We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.
