flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.
Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and difident, others again are plain, honest and upright.
- Henry Ward Beecher
None can have a healthy love for flowers unless he loves the wild ones.
- Forbes Watson
To me, the meanest flower that blows can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
- William Wordsworth
