"Gardens have special meaning. They are powerful settings for human life, transcending time, place, and culture."
"Initially, a garden is a visual experience, but there is more than meets the eye. The image is transmitted to the brain, decoded, recognized, and transferred to a deeper level of our being. Here lies a reservoir of feelings, such as pleasure, displeasure, awe, fear, or fascination, that are drawn upon subconsciously to clarify what we see." -Charles A. Lewis
