What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
- William Shakespeare
There are philosophies as varied as the flowers of the field,
and some of them weeds and a few of them poisonous weeds.
But they none of them create the psychological conditions
in which I first saw, or desired to see, the flower.
- G. K. Chesterton
Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless, peacocks and lilies for instance.
- John Ruskin
