Every child is born a naturalist.
His eyes are, by nature, open to the glories of the stars, the beauty of the flowers, and the mystery of life.

Pluck not the wayside flower,
It is the traveler's dower.

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
- Anais Nin
Lone and erect, beneath light's primal flood,
A lily! and pure as any one of you.
