flowery friday quotes:

"earth laughs in flowers."
-ralph waldo emerson

"people from a planet without flowers

would think we must be mad with joy."
-iris murdock


"what was paradise, but a garden..."
-william lawson

"i smelt the violets in her hand and asked, half in
words, half in sighs, a question which meant, "is love the sweetness of flowers?"
-helen keller


"arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem, or saying aprayer."
-anne morrow lindbergh

"i know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
where oxslips and the nodding violet grows
quite over canopied with luscious woodbine,
with sweet musk-roses and the eglantine.
[lulled in these flowers with dances and delight]..."
-william shakespeare
from a mid summer nights dream
