Little flower, but if I could understand, what you are, root and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the greatest of creation's braggart lords.
- John Muir
If thou canst but thither,
There grows the flower of Peace,
The rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.
- Henry Vaughn
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love,
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
- John Boyle O’Reilly
