flowers are as common in the country as people are in London.
- Oscar Wilde
To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music,
it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy,
than to attempt to fully understand.
- Henry T. Tuckerman
For myself I hold no preferences among flowers,
so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.
Bricks to all greenhouses!
Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!
- Edward Abbey
But ne'er the rose without the thorn.
- Robert Herrick
