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
