This old world that we're livin' in is might hard to beat.
You get a thorn with every rose But - ain't the roses sweet?
- Frank Stanton
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else.
Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.
I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
- Georgia O'Keeffe
At dawn I asked the lotus,
'What is the meaning of life?'
Slowly she opened her hand
with nothing in it.

Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.
- Gerald De Nerval
