Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
- Victor Hugo
Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ...
a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.
And the anticipation nurtures our dream.
- Barbara Winkler
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
To me, the meanest flower that blows can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
- William Wordsworth
