Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
- Heinrich Heine
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
- Gertrude S. Wister
Do not the petals flutter down,
Just like this?
Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you.
- Edward Payson Rod
