Where the Wild Things Grow.........

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

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, A Fairly Honourable Defeat

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant! ~Edward Abbey

If dandelions were hard to grow, they would be most welcome on any lawn. ~Andrew Mason

Can we conceive what humanity would be if it did not know the flowers? ~Maurice Maeterlinck

God loved the flowers and invented soil. Man loved the flowers and invented vases. ~ by Jacques Deval

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages ~Jacques Deval

Flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow. ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

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, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers
