I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. . .
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise
spring up before all nations.
~Isaiah 61:10a, 11
Let your bookcases and your shelves be your gardens and your pleasure-grounds.
Pluck the fruit that grows therein, gather the roses, the spices, and the myrrh.
~Judah Ibn Tibbon
