flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
-Henry Ward Beckford
Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now,
at this moment,
at this place,
The world of the flower,
the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower,
the truth of the blossom.
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
- Zenkei Shibayama
flowers are as common in the country as people are in London.
- Oscar Wilde
Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
