The Amen! of Nature is always a flower.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
There are philosophies as varied as the flowers of the field,
and some of them weeds and a few of them poisonous weeds.
But they none of them create the psychological conditions
in which I first saw, or desired to see, the flower.
- G. K. Chesterton
From a thorn comes a rose, and from a rose comes a thorn.
- Greek Proverb
Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
