TAGGED W – WATER LILY
Outside the Phipps Conservatory in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh you will find the Aquatic Gardens. The water pond is filled with water and floating plants including water lilies.
Standing watch over the pond, is a century-old statue of Neptune, the Roman sea-god. He wears a seaweed skirt and stands on a shell with his trident held in his right hand, its tines pointing upward.
Quotes About Water Lily
“I think that the best kind of change, is the change that comes from the inside and begins it’s way out until it emerges on the outside; a change that is born underneath then continues and spreads until it has reached the surface. That’s a true change. A powerful change. And I have found that while we are emerging, changing into something glorious; it is actually us becoming who we really are. A water lily is born underneath the water, inside the soil at the bottom of the river or lake. And the water lily has always been a water lily for that whole time that it was sprouting out of the wet soil, reaching up through the dark water towards the sunlight, stretching and grasping for the surface; where it then buds and blooms on the outside in the sunshine. It doesn’t bud and bloom on the surface and then try to reach down below into the soil.”
