The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love,
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
- John Boyle O’Reilly
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.
Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and difident, others again are plain, honest and upright.
- Henry Ward Beecher
flowers really do intoxicate me.
- Vita Sackville-West
