You love the roses - so do I.
I wish the sky would rain down roses, as they rain from off the shaken bush.
Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white and soft to tread on.
They would fall as light as feathers, smelling sweet, and it would be like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
- George Eliot
It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
- William Carlos Williams
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
- Walt Whitman
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
