flowers bring to a liberal and gentlemanly mind the remembrance of honesty, comeliness and all kinds of virtues.
- John Gerard
In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
- Abram L. Urban
How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor!
One of the most attractive things about
the flowers is their beautiful reserve.
- Henry David Thoreau
