A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
- Walt Whitman
The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.
- Tennessee Williams
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows
Quite over canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with elgantine.
- William Shakespeare
I didn't know the names of the flowers
now my garden is gone.
- Allen Ginsberg
