A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counselor, a multitude of counselors.
— Henry Ward Beecher

I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods.
Wendell Berry orchards quote

Let the public mind become corrupt, and all efforts to secure property, liberty, or life by the force of laws written on paper will be as vain as putting up a sign in an apple orchard to exclude canker worms.
— Horace Mann

The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.
— Katherine Mansfield

Surely man was not created to be an idle fellow; he was not set in this universal orchard to stand still as a tree.
— Thomas Dekker
