The Amen! of Nature is always a flower.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.
- Beverly Nichols
A cherry tree
And there are no flowers,
But the spring breeze
Brings forth myriad blossoms.
- Ikkyu Sojun
Observe this dew-drenched rose of Tyrian gardens
A rose today. But you will ask in vain
Tomorrow what it is, and yesterday
It was the dust, the sunshine, and the rains.
- Christina rosetti
