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
A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
- Walt Whitman
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
- Heinrich Heine
To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.
- Beverly Nichols
