flowers construct the most charming geometries: circles like the sun, ovals, cones, curlicues and a variety of triangular eccentricities,
which when viewed with the eye of a magnifying glass seem a Lilliputian frieze of psychedelic silhouettes.
- Duane Michals
I didn't know the names of the flowers
now my garden is gone.
- Allen Ginsberg
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
- Iris Murdoch
