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!
None can have a healthy love for flowers unless he loves the wild ones.
- Forbes Watson
He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person,
but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.
- Celia Thaxter
Lone and erect, beneath light's primal flood,
A lily! and pure as any one of you.
