The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
- Gertrude S. Wister
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
flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and diffident, others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
- Henry Ward Beecher
I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at.
I know the beauty of our Lord by it.
- Gerald Manley Hopkins
