  • Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decypher even fragments of their meaning.
    * Lydia M. Child

  • Flowers...are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
    * Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
    * Jean Giraudoux

  • When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
    * Georgia O'Keeffe

  • 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

  • I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
    * William Woodsworth
