The Amen! of Nature is always a flower.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Red rose, proud rose, sad rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways.
- William Butler Yeats
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
With daffodils mad footnotes for the spring,
And asters purple asterisks for autumn
- Conrad Aiken
