If thou canst but thither,
There grows the flower of Peace,
The rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.
- Henry Vaughn
There are philosophies as varied as the flowers of the field,
and some of them weeds and a few of them poisonous weeds.
But they none of them create the psychological conditions
in which I first saw, or desired to see, the flower.
- G. K. Chesterton
With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.
- Lope de Vega
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
- Jean Giraudoux
