A flower doesn't love you or hate you, it just exists.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Even Helen Keller, who was born blind and deaf, could see God. No doubt, in her silent darkness, every fragrant flower, every ray of the warm sun, every taste that touched her tongue told her that there was a God who created all things. Jodie Foster shouldn't therefore be surprised that people are surprised that she's an atheist.

Loveliest of lovely things are they on earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
William C. Bryant

Happiness is the natural flower of duty.
The flower which is single need not envy the thorns that are numerous.
Politeness is the flower of humanity.
I wanted to know the name of every stone and flower and insect and bird and beast. I wanted to know where it got its color, where it got its life - but there was no one to tell me.
George Washington Carver
By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower.
The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I'm taking more chances; I'm bold and proud.
A woman should be like a single flower, not a whole bouquet.
Love is flower like; Friendship is like a sheltering tree.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see - or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.
Patience doesn't mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that's unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.
I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
A weed is but an unloved flower.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
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.
Everybody has a right to like or dislike anything or anyone. From a flower to a flavor to a book or a composition but it is very sad that in our country we actually fight over such things in an unseemly manner.
There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the greatest of creation's braggart lords.
When the flower blossoms, the bee will come.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
