There's rosemary, that's for remembrance--pray you love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
- William Shakespeare
The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
- Emma Goldman
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still aflying,
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.
- Robert Herrick
