With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.
- Lope de Vega
Their lips were four red roses on a stalk.
- William Shakespeare
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
Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.
- Gerard De Nerval
