There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
- Anais Nin
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else.
Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.
I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
- Georgia O'Keeffe
The actual flower is the plant's highest fulfillment, and are not here exclusively for herbaria, county floras and plant geography.
they are here first of all for delight.
- John Ruskin
In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger.
