One of the most attractive things about
the flowers is their beautiful reserve.
- Henry David Thoreau
flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and diffident, others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Can we conceive what humanity would be if it did not know the flowers?
- Maurice Maeterlinck
