How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor!
When I walk with you, I feel as if I had a flower in my buttonhole.
- William Makepeace Thackeray
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
- Victor Hugo
I ’d be a butterfly born in a bower, Where roses and lilies and violets meet.
- Thomas Haynes Bayly
