Deep in their root, all flowers keep the light.
- Theodore Roethke
The rose is fairest when 'tis budding new,
And hope is brightest when it dawns from fears.
- Sir Walter Scott
Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now,
at this moment,
at this place,
The world of the flower,
the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower,
the truth of the blossom.
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
- Zenkei Shibayama
flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.
- Antonio Porchia
