Red rose, proud rose, sad rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways.
- William Butler Yeats
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
In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
- Abram L. Urban
Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.
- Gerard De Nerval
