flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
- John Ruskin
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
- Emma Goldman
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
Do not the petals flutter down,
Just like this?
