Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking: but even one solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
If I had but two loaves of bread, I would sell one and buy hyacinths, for they would feed my soul.
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
I know of no other genus whose plants flower out-of-doors every day of the year. I know of no other genus with one or more species coming into bloom or growth, peaking or going dormant at every season.
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
Lady Bird Johnson
The world is a rose; smell it and pass it to your friends.
Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
Henry Ward Beecher
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
