Are we, finally, speaking of nature or culture when we speak of a rose (nature), that has been bred (culture) so that its blossoms (nature) make men imagine (culture) the sex of women (nature)?
It may be this sort of confusion that we need more of.
- Michael Pollan
Red rose, proud rose, sad rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways.
- William Butler Yeats
God loved the flowers and invented soil. Man loved the flowers and invented vases.
- Variation of a saying by Jacques Deval
The old tree is shook
White blossoms slowly float down
Dancers in the wind
- Alexandra Kim
