What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our starts the flowers of the heaven.
A.J. Balfour

Forsythia is pure joy. There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia. Pure, undiluted, untouched joy.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?
G.K. Chesterton

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
Claude Monet

Flowers are not made by singing "Oh, how beautiful," and sitting in the shade.
Rudyard Kipling

He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.
Celia Thaxter

True friendship is like a rose: we don't realize its beauty until it fades.
Evelyn Loeb

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
And of thy meager store
Two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
Sheikh Muslih-uddin Saadi Shirazi
The Gulistan of Saadi.

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
Abram L. Urban

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
Abraham Lincoln

This old world that we're livin' in
Is might hard to beat.
You get a thorn with every Rose
But - ain't the roses sweet?
Frank Stanton

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses.
Alphonse Karr

Often the prickly thorn produces tender roses.
Ovid

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

It will never rain roses. When we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses.
George Eliot

Science, or para-science, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to. But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough. Too much attention, like too much feeding, and weeding and hoeing, inhibits and embarrasses them.
Victoria Glendinning

Flowers bring to a liberall and gentlemanly minde the remembrance of honestie, comelinesse and all kindes of virtues.
John Gerard

Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought.
Sophie Scholl

And 'tis my faith, that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
William Wordsworth
Lines Written in Early Spring.

One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve.
Henry David Thoreau

Flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.
Chinese proverb

We gathered the wild-flowers.
Yes, life there seem'd one pure delight;
As thro' the field we rov'd.
Yes, life there seem'd one pure delight.
George Linley

Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
Zenkei Shibayama

Lowly, with a broken neck,
The crocus lays her cheek to mire.
George Meredith

I have a garden of my own,
But so with roses overgrown,
And lilies, that you would it guess
To be a little wilderness.
Andrew Marvell

A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking; but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
Vita Sackville-West

If thou canst but thither,
There grows the flower of Peace,
The Rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.
Henry Vaughn

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.
Indian Proverb

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
T.S. Eliot
Four Quartets.

Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody. Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy.
Robert G. Ingersoll

Don't try to force anything. Let life be a deep let-go. See God opening millions of flowers every day without forcing the buds.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music; it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy, than to attempt to fully understand.
Henry T. Tuckerman

The gardens that make us happiest flourish because we have taken the time to make sure they feed our souls and fill a special place in our lives. Sometimes you have to think about what you really want from your garden ... once the beds are laid out and the rose bushes planted.
Lindley Karstens

You love the roses so do I.
I wish The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
George Eliot
Roses.
