Can we conceive what humanity would be if it did not know the flowers?
- Maurice Maeterlinck
He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person,
but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.
- Celia Thaxter
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
- Jean Giraudoux
For myself I hold no preferences among flowers,
so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.
Bricks to all greenhouses!
Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!
- Edward Abbey
