The earth laughs in flowers.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
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
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
- Iris Murdoch
