A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
- Elizabeth Barrett Brownbing
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
Oh, my luve’s like a red, red rose,
That ’s newly sprung in June,
Oh, my luve’s like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
- Robert Burns
