flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
- John Ruskin
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December.
- J. M. Barrie
Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
- Elizabeth Barrett Brownbing
