Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.
The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.
Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen
Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving out wholesome fragrance; but revelry is the same flower, when rank and running to seed. Desiderius Erasmus
Happiness is the art of making a bouquet of those flowers within reach.
She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her… I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her…
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
