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.

There's rosemary, that's for remembrance--pray you love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
- William Shakespeare
Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms.
