The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody.
Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy".
- Robert G. Ingersoll
Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now,
at this moment,
at this place,
The world of the flower,
the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower,
the truth of the blossom.
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
- Zenkei Shibayama
I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at.
I know the beauty of our Lord by it.
- Gerald Manley Hopkins
