Life is a “jam”

Robert Louis Stevenson - Scottish novelist, poet and travel writer

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. 

Marcus Aurelius - Roman emperor and Philosopher

Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be.

Mahatma Gandhi - Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist

Everything that Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny, is in a manner the seed of that which will be.

Og Mandino - American author

Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.

Samuel Smiles - Author and government reformer

Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.

BJ Fogg - American social scientist who is currently a research associate at Stanford University and author

Plant a good seed in the right spot and it will grow without further coaxing.

James Allen - British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement

A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. 

Michael Bernard Beckwith - New Thought minister, author, and founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Beverly Hills, California, a New Thought church with a congregation estimated in excess of 8,000 members

Grow deep roots to harvest rich fruit! When your roots run deep, you cannot help but bear the fruit of the Spirit.

Michael Roach - American non-traditional teacher of Tibetan Buddhism. Ordained as a Gelugpa monk, he was the first American to receive the Geshe degree at Sera Monastery in Tibet

Imprints works the same as plants, don’t doubt it. Nobody would plant some flower seeds in their garden on Monday, and then stand in the garden all day on Tuesday waiting for their flowers, angry and disappointed when they failed to appear by evening.

Michael Roach - American non-traditional teacher of Tibetan Buddhism. Ordained as a Gelugpa monk, he was the first American to receive the Geshe degree at Sera Monastery in Tibet

We are always in the business of gardening for the future.

James Clear - Author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits, which has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide

All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.
