by Victor Hugo

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in —
what more could he ask?
A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.

 

 

 

 

Note: Today in 1885, Victor Hugo died, the author of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame as well as Les Miserables. A gardener, Hugo had many wonderful garden-inspired quotes.
