And I were like the leaf,
Our love would grow together,
In sad or sighing weather.

He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.
Persian Proverb

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

Break open
A cherry tree
And there are no flowers,
But the spring breeze
Brings forth myriad blossoms.
Ikkyu Sojun

White blossoms slowly float down
Dancers in the wind.
Alexandra Kim

Lady Bird Johnson

The world is a rose; smell it and pass it to your friends.
Persian Proverb

I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at. I know the beauty of our Lord by it.
Gerald Manley Hopkins

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.
Robert Herrick

A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar. Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.
Diane Ackerman
A Natural History of the Senses.

To pick a flower is so much more satisfying than just observing it, or photographing it ... So in later years, I have grown in my garden as many flowers as possible for children to pick.
Anne Scott-James

They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.
Ernest Dowson

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

What grows in the garden, so lovely and rare?
Roses and Dahlias and people grow there.
From TV show A Gardener's Diary

And if you voz to see my roziz
As is a boon to all men's noziz,
You'd fall upon your back and scream
'O Lawk! O criky! it's a dream!'
Edward Lear

It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
William Carlos Williams

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!
Edward Abbey

There are philosophies as varied as the flowers of the field, and some of them weeds and a few of them poisonous weeds. But they none of them create the psychological conditions in which I first saw, or desired to see, the flower.
G. K. Chesterton

The actual flower is the plant's highest fulfilment, and are not here exclusively for herbaria, county floras and plant geography: they are here first of all for delight.
John Ruskin

In the dooryard fronting an old farm-house near the white-wash'd palings,
Stands the lilac-bush tall-growing with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
With many a pointed blossom rising delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle - and from this bush in the dooryard,
With delicate-color'd blossoms and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig with its flower I break.
Walt Whitman
Leaves of Grass.

If there were nothing else to trouble us, the fate of the flowers would make us sad.
John Lancaster Spalding
Aphorisms and Reflections.

I didn't know the names
of the flowers- now
my garden is gone.
Allen Ginsberg
Winter Haiku.
