It will never rain roses.
When we want to have more roses,
we must plant more roses.
- George Eliot
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still aflying,
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.
- Robert Herrick
flowers are love's truest language.
- Park Benjamin
A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
- Walt Whitman
