flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and diffident, others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
- Henry Ward Beecher
To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music,
it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy,
than to attempt to fully understand.
- Henry T. Tuckerman
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places
in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.- Gertrude S. Wister
flowers really do intoxicate me.
- Vita Sackville-West
