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
In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
- Abram L. Urban
God loved the flowers and invented soil. Man loved the flowers and invented vases.
- Variation of a saying by Jacques Deval
Lone and erect, beneath light's primal flood,
A lily! and pure as any one of you.
