Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
- Walt Whitman
In the hope of reaching the moon
that blossom at their feet.
- Albert Schweitzer
How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor!
