Flowers

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 weed is but an unloved flower. - Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Did you know… that when you walk past a flower, whether it be in somebody’s garden or on a vacant hillside, the flower will always smile at you. The most polite way to respond, I’ve been told, is to cheerfully return the smile. - Ron Atchison

Do not hurry. You are only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers. - Walter Hagen

Do not mock the wild flowers by the side of the freeways. This random scattering adds colour to the landscape and scenery. They take the tiredness from your eyes so you will be alert on the road. They are Mother Nature’s way of adding colour to an otherwise dull, long or boring journey and ensuring you arrive safely at your destination. - Vincent Thnay

Dont strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow, no flowers of life will cheer me. Instead, you may give me my roses now! - Thomas F. Healey

Earth laughs in flowers. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Flowers grow out of dark moments. - Corita Kent

Flowers have a mysterious and subtle influence upon the feelings, not unlike some strains of music. They relax the tenseness of the mind. They dissolve its rigor. - Henry Ward Beecher

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. - Hans Christian Anderson

If you want the flowers in your garden to be glorious and to smell good, you must risk an occasional stink. - Unknown

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers why not gather your own bouquet. - Unknown

Many people have never learned to see the beauty of flowers, especially those that grow unnoticed. For instance, when you walk outside and look down at your feet, you may see tiny flowers nestled in the moss and clover hiding under a curled fern. Most people just step on them. - Erika Just

One flower makes no garland. - George Herbert

The flower fades that is not looked upon. - Edward Counsel

The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all. - Walt Disney

This very moment is a seed from which the flowers of tomorrow’s happiness grow. - Unknown

Where flowers bloom so does hope. - Lady Bird Johnson

People only send me flowers when I’m ill, or in a hospital when I’m too distracted to enjoy them. And how sad that the day I receive the most flowers I won’t even see them. Who needs flowers after you’re dead? - Unknown

What this old world needs is more bouquets handed around to folks when they are alive and kicking. Flowers don’t do a dead one much good. - Robert Elliott Gonzales
