The Hub

You won’t find many quotes, sayings or poems about a hub. No witty metaphors, no rhyming of words to show adoration of the center of things, the hub. Without the hub we are at a standstill. There how about that one. “Without the hub, we are at a standstill.” SwittersB              

For something so essential, there’s little written praising the hub. The word itself does not foster pleasant thoughts I s’pose. Ok, walk if you must. But it has its limitations in the end. Praise to the hub.

Photography: What Was…What Is

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.”   Rudyard Kipling

“God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown.
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said “To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.
Prune ye my vines and fig trees,
With care my flowers tend,
But keep the pathway open
Your home is at the end.”

God’s Garden ~ Robert Frost

“I haven’t much time to be fond of anything … but when I have a moment’s fondness to bestow, most times … the roses get it. I began my life among them in my father’s nursery garden, and I shall end my life among them, if I can. Yes. One of these days (please God) I shall retire from catching thieves, and try my hand at growing roses.” Wilkie Collins, Moonstone

“Long experience has taught me that people who do not like geraniums have something morally unsound about them. Sooner or later you will find them out; you will discover that they drink, or steal books, or speak sharply to cats. Never trust a man or a woman who is not passionately devoted to geraniums.”

Beverly Nichols

“Why do we keep believing that we can control nature, even as it banishes us repeatedly from our homes in search of new fertile ground?” Maria Rodale

“Gardens are made of darkness and light entwined.” 
F.T. McKinstry, Crowharrow
