“ Je voudrais échauffer tout l'univers de mon gout pour les jardins. Il me semble
qu'il est impossible qu’un méchant puisse l'avoir. Il n'est point de vertus que je ne
suppose à celui que aime à parler et à faire des jardins. Péres de famille, inspirez
la jardinomavie à vos enfans.”—Prince De Ligne.
