Elephants don’t try to become giraffes or swallows, radishes don’t try to become beetroot. But we try to be what we are not. We choke on ideals that are unattainable or that can only be achieved at our own expense. We tiptoe just to avoid bumping into anything, and eventually get angry with our toes when they hurt us. (Bruno Paul de Roeck)

Look at the fir trees of dill,
Touch a pink radish with your finger,
Stand quietly, like at a coffin,
Where there is a strict thuja’s obelisk. (David Samoilov)

There is nothing that is comparable to it, as satisfactory or as thrilling, as gathering the vegetables one has grown. (Alice B. Toklas)

Literature and radishes

Heartburn, onion.
