And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies.
- Christopher Marlowe
I know of no other genus whose plants flower out-of-doors every day of the year.
I know of no other genus with one or more species coming into bloom or growth, peaking or going dormant at every season.
- Nancy Goodwin
A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
- Walt Whitman
Different flowers look good to different people
Pick the flower when it is ready to be picked.
The flower that you spent time to care for does not grow
while the willow that your accidentally planted flourishes and gives shade.
- Chinese Proverbs
