I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows
Quite over canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with elgantine.
- William Shakespeare
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
- Heinrich Heine
Thou cannot stir a flower
Without troubling a star.
- Francis Thompson
It will never rain roses.
When we want to have more roses,
we must plant more roses.
- George Eliot
