"The sage belongs to the same obsolete repertory as the virtuous maiden and the enlightened monarch."
~ Mason Cooley
"Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvare, "to heal," and for centuries salvias have been valued for their tonifying and culinary qualities. Salvias, commonly known as sages, grow throughout temperate and subtropical parts of the world, from sea level to altitudes of more than 11,000 feet (3400 meters). They occur in many forms: perennial, biennial, annual herbs, and evergreen or deciduous shrubs."
~ Betsy Clebsch and Carol D. Barner, The New Book of Salvias: Sages for Every Garden
