If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things.
Henry David Thoreau

A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant - rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance - but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself.
Roberto Burle Marx

Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it.
Anais Nin

Edward Thorndike
