There are philosophies as varied as the flowers of the field,
and some of them weeds and a few of them poisonous weeds.
But they none of them create the psychological conditions
in which I first saw, or desired to see, the flower.
- G. K. Chesterton
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
- Lady Bird Johnson
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
