God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December.
- J. M. Barrie
Different flowers look good to different people
Pick the flower when it is ready to be picked.
The flower that you spent time to care for does not grow
while the willow that your accidentally planted flourishes and gives shade.
- Chinese Proverbs
Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
- William Shakespeare
