Everything is flowing going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks ... . While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood globules in Nature's warm heart.
Our mind is like a field, and performing actions is like sowing seeds in that field.geshe kelsang gyatso
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.jesus christ
Courtship is the time for sowing those seeds which will grow up ten years into domestic hatred.C. S. Lewis
Can someone eat the fruit that comes from the tree of action that grows from the seeds of your mind?.
The Muses'garden, with pedantic weeds O'erspread, was purged by thee; the lazy seeds Of servile imitation thrown away, And fresh invention planted.thomas carew
First, sturdy March with brows full sternly bent, And arme' d strongly, rode upon a ram, The same which over Hellespontus swam: Yet in his hand a spade he also hent, And in a bag all sorts of seeds ysame, Which on the earth he strowe' d as he went, And filled her womb with fruitful hope of nourishment.Edmund Spenser
All the sincerity in Hollywood you could stuff in a flea's navel and still have room left to conceal eight caraway seeds and an agent's heart.fred allen

And we saw the seed,The minuscule Sequoia seedIn the museum by the tremendous slabOf the tree. And imagined the seedIn soil and the growth quickenedSo that we saw the seed reach out, forcingEarth thru itself into bark, wood, the greenNeedles of a redwood until the treeStood in the room without soil—How much of the earth'sCrust has livedThe seed’s violence!The shock is metaphysical.george oppen
Alienation and loneliness plant the seeds for rebellion and consciousness.b. w. powe
His eyesAll radiant with glad surprise,Looked forward through the CenturiesAnd saw the seeds which sages castIn the world’s soil in cycles pastSpring up and blossom at the last;Saw how the souls of men had grown,And where the scythes of Truth had mownClear space for Liberty’s white throne;Saw how, by sorrow tried and proved,The blackening stains had been removedForever from the land he loved;Saw Treason crushed and Freedom crowned,And clamorous Faction, gagged and bound,Gasping its life out on the ground.
When freedom rises from the killing floor,No lock of iron or rivet can restrain the door.And no kind of army can hope to win a warLike trying to stop the rain or still the lion`s roar,Like trying to stop the whirlwind scattering seeds and sporesLike trying to stop the tin cans rapping out jailhouse semaphore.joe strummer
Drowned idols swirl like seeds in chaos ' wine . Look, Job ! Caught Beauty , held to light, now apes A good, now evil, thing the shifting sign And spectrum of archaic, psychic shapes.philip josé farmer
[A]s we discern a fine line between crank and genius, so also (and unfortunately) we must acknowledge an equally graded trajectory from crank to demagogue. When people learn no tools of judgment and merely follow their hopes, the seeds of political manipulation are sown.stephen jay gould
The invocation of social necessity should alert us. It contains the seeds for Marx's critique of political economy as well as for his dissection of capitalism .david harvey
Yay, Old Uns’ Smart mastered sicks, miles, seeds an' made miracles ord’nary, but it din’t master one thing, nay, a hunger in the hearts o' humans, yay, a hunger for more.david mitchell
The quality of our life depends on the quality of the seeds that lie deep in our consciousness.thich nhat hanh
The herbicide known as 2,4-D has had limited use in corn and soybean farming because it becomes toxic to the plants early in their growth. The new seeds would let farmers use the weed killer throughout the plants’ lives.
Farmers have been eager for a new generation of herbicide-resistant seeds because of the prevalence of weeds that have become immune to Monsanto’s Roundup. But skeptics are concerned that use of the new seeds and 2,4-D will only lead to similar problems as weeds acquire resistance to that chemical too.
For dear to gods and men is sacred song. Self-taught I sing; by Heaven and Heaven alone, The genuine seeds of poesy are sown.homer
There are these amazing little seeds called compassion. You should grow some.Richelle E. Goodrich
There is a history in all men's lives, Figuring the nature of the times deceas'd, The which observed, a man may prophesy With a near aim, of the main chance of things As yet not come to life, which in their seeds And weak beginnings lie intreasured.william shakespeare
Spring flies, and with it all the train it leads; and flowers, in fading, leave us but their seeds.Friedrich Schiller
I believe that the civilization India has evolved is not to be beaten in the world. Nothing can equal the seeds sown by our ancestry. Rome went; Greece shared the same fate; the might of the Pharaohs was broken; Japan has become westernized; of China nothing can be said; but India is still, somehow or other, sound at the foundation.
