or growing roses makes people nice.

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.
- Indian Proverb
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
Let us open our leaves like a flower, and be passive and receptive.
- John Keats
