Inspiration For The Inner Gardener

Although Dr. Mays did not have garden design in mind when he said this, the spirit of his thought is a suitable one for us to incorporate when cultivating our inner gardener practice:

"It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn't lie
in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal
to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled,
but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be
unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no
ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars,
but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not
failure, but low aim is a sin."
