Flower Quotes

A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.
H. L. Mencken (1880 -1956)
 
I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some.
Herbert Rappaport
 
Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem, or saying a prayer.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Flowers never emit so sweet and strong a fragrance as before a storm. When a storm approaches thee, be as fragrant as a sweet-smelling flower.
Jean Paul Richter (1763 - 1825)

Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, drawing them from their homes.
Clare Ansberry, The Women of Troy Hill

A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.
Chinese Proverb

The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

Let the minor genius go his light way and enjoy his life - the great nature cannot so live, he is never really in holiday mood, even though he often plucks flowers by the wayside and ties them into knots and garlands like little children and lays out on a sunny morning.
W. B. Yeats

The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms, Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
Auguste Rodin

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719)

Flowers never emit so sweet and strong a fragrance as before a storm. When a storm approaches thee, be as fragrant as a sweet-smelling flower.
Jean Paul Richter (1763 - 1825)

Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
Georgia O'Keeffe (1887 - 1986)

This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), "Romeo and Juliet", Act 2 scene 2


To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
William Blake (1757 - 1827)
 
It is not growing like a tree
in bulk doth make man better be;
Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere,
A lily of a day
is fairer in May
Although it fall and die that night,
It was the plant of flower and light,
In small proportions we just beauties see;
And in short measures, life may perfect be.
Benjamin Johnson

He is happiest who hath power to gather wisdom from a flower.
Mary Howitt

We must learn not to disassociate the airy flower from the earthy root, for the flower that is cut off from its root fades, and its seeds are barren, whereas the root, secure in mother earth, can produce flower after flower and bring their fruit to maturity.
Kabbalah

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
Buddha (563 BC - 483 BC)

For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.
David H. Lawrence

Good taste is the flower of good sense.
A. Poincelot

There is not a flower or bird in sight, only a small screen on which lines are moving, while the child sits almost motionless, pushing at the keyboard with one finger. As a learning environment, it may be mentally rich, but it is perceptually extremely impoverished. No smells or tastes, no wind or bird song (unless the computer is programmed to produce electronic tweets), no connection with soil, water, sunlight, warmth, the actual learning environment is almost autistic in quality, impoverished sensually, emotionally, and socially.
John Davy

The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
Jean Giraudoux, The Enchanted, 1933

There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the greatest of creation's braggart lords.
John Muir, A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf, 1916 
 
Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to get attention we do, except walk?
Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982 
 
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
William Wordsworth, "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood", 1803
