The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
It will never rain roses.
When we want to have more roses,
we must plant more roses.
- George Eliot
And 't is my faith, that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
- William Wordsworth
How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor!
