The nature of This flower is to bloom.
- Alice Walker
There's rosemary, that's for remembrance--pray you love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
- William Shakespeare
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
- T.S. Eliot
