I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
I ’d be a butterfly born in a bower, Where roses and lilies and violets meet.
- Thomas Haynes Bayly
You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.
- Hal Borland
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
