Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
- Henry Ward Beecher
If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
And of thy meager store
Two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
- Sheikh Muslih-uddin Saadi Shirazi
