Quotes about loam


1. I am not a smart man, particularly, but one day, at long last, I stumbled from the dark woods of my own, and my family's, and my country's past, holding in my hands these truths: that love grows from the rich loam of forgiveness; that mongrels make good dogs; that the evidence of God exists in the roundness of things. This much, at least, I've figured out. I know this much is true.
- Wally Lamb, I Know This Much Is True

2. We are living in a time when flowers are trying to live on flowers, instead of on good rain and black loam.
- Ray Bradbury
