True friendship is like a rose: we don't realize its beauty until it fades.
- Evelyn Loeb
flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.
- Antonio Porchia
If, I can someday see M. Claude Monet's garden,
I feel sure that I shall see something that is not so much a garden of flowers as of colours and tones,
less an old-fashioned flower garden than a colour garden, so to speak,
one that achieves an effect not entirely nature's,
because it was planted so that only the flowers with matching colours will bloom at the same time,
harmonized in an infinite stretch of blue or pink.
- Marcel Proust
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
