Little flower, but if I could understand, what you are, root and all in all, I should know what God and man is.

His eyes are, by nature, open to the glories of the stars, the beauty of the flowers, and the mystery of life.
- R. Search
Red rose, proud rose, sad rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways.
- William Butler Yeats
