If thou canst but thither,
There grows the flower of Peace,
The rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.
- Henry Vaughn
I have a garden of my own,
But so with roses overgrown,
that you would it guess to be a little wilderness.
- Andrew Marvell
flowers really do intoxicate me.
- Vita Sackville-West
flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.
Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and difident, others again are plain, honest and upright.
- Henry Ward Beecher
