|With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen
pictures and some books, I live without envy.
Lope de Vega
Pluck not the wayside flower; It is the traveler's dower.
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
Love is the flower you've got to let grow.
A beautiful flower begins its life in the dirt.
In the hope of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers
that blossom at their feet.
If love were what the rose is,
And I were like the leaf,
Our love would grow together,
In sad or sighing weather.
Charles Algernon Swinburne
None can have a healthy love for flowers unless he loves the
He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.
Little flower, but if I could understand, what you are, root
and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
A cherry tree
And there are no flowers,
But the spring breeze
Brings forth myriad blossoms.
Let us open our leaves like a flower, and be passive and receptive.
The old tree is shook
White blossoms slowly float down
Dancers in the wind.
Wildflowers don't care where they grow.
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
Lady Bird Johnson
The world is a rose; smell it and pass it to your friends.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was
more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
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!'
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!
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.
In the dooryard fronting an old farm-house near the white-wash'd
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
A sprig with its flower I break.
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.
