This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas
”For the citybred man a half-hour of vigorous exercise in the garden in the morning will be better for health than dumb-bells, and the charm of the early day, the song of the birds, the delight in watching the growing things, will furnish a power to meet  the business world, more natural and free, more sustaining than the philosophies of any new thought.”
The Garden Book of California
