The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
God loved the flowers and invented soil. Man loved the flowers and invented vases.
- Variation of a saying by Jacques Deval
I cast my heart into my rhymes,
That you, in the dim coming times,
May know how my heart went with them
After the red-rose-bordered hem.
- William Butler Yeats
flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.
They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character,
though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
- Lydia M. Child
