Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive.
You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
