Mud-pies gratify one of our first and best instincts. So long as we are dirty, we are pure.
Warner quotes
It is fortunate that each generation does not comprehend its own ignorance. We are thus enabled to call our ancestors barbarous.
Warner
What a man needs in gardening is a cast-iron back,ówith a hinge in it.




Warner Charles Dudley quotes
There was never a nation great until it came to the knowledge that it had nowhere in the world to go for help.
Warner Charles Dudley
Politics makes strange bedfellows.
Charles Dudley Warner quotes
A well known American writer said once that, while everybody talked about the weather, nobody seemed to do anything about it.
Charles Dudley Warner
To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds and watch, their renewal of life, this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do.
Warner Charles Dudley quotes
Lettuce is like conversation: it must be fresh and crisp, so sparkling that you scarcely notice the bitter in it.
Warner
The thing generally raised on city land is taxes.
Warner Charles Dudley

What small potatoes we all are, compared with what we might be!




Charles Dudley Warner quotes
Let us celebrate the soil. Most men toil that they may own a piece of it; they measure their success in life by their ability to buy it.
Charles Dudley Warner
The toad, without which no garden would be complete.
Warner quotes
No man but feels more of a man in the world if he have a bit of ground that he can call his own. However small it is on the surface, it is four thousand miles deep; and that is a very handsome property.
